Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good morning thank you for your question, this seems like a very unusual request and there have been several scams recently of people in America being asked to send large sums of money to a law firm in London.
Do you have any other information? Here in the UK money like that is not requested in relation to estates.
Good morning, please contact me if you have further questions.
Ok so if you look up Harcourt Buildings you will see that they list their barristers. Also in the UK we are either solicitors or barristers or lawyers, we are not known as advocates. Also Harcourt Buildings has it's own email address so a barrister would not be using a gmail email address, nor asking for large sums of money up front, so you can guarantee that this is a scam.
