The victim sent mail to Bar Council of UK. Here is the reply.

Thank you for your email. I have checked our records, which return to the 1960’s and I confirm that we have no record of a barrister by the name of Roland James as a Barrister of England and Wales.

Please note that as we are not the body or organisation which issued the attached documents, we cannot attest to the authenticity of the document attached to your email.

If a person has not qualified as a barrister, they cannot use the term “barrister” at all.

It is against the law for someone to (deliberately or wilfully) pretend to be a barrister when they are not, or to use any name, title or description that makes it seem as though they are a barrister when they are not.

Further details about the above may be found on the Bar Standards Board website ‘Is the person I’m dealing with really a barrister’

If you have been targeted by a scam email, do not give out any money or personal details up front. You should contact your police if you believe you have fallen victim to a scam. If you are based outside of the UK, please contact your local law enforcement agency.

I am sorry that I am not able to help you further and if you are in doubt to their legitimacy - you certainly should not give out any personal information or part with money - I’m sure however that you know that anyway!

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me at this office.

Yours Sincerely,

Alex Paynter
