I had received the below given email. Kindly let me know whether these are part of a scam or genuine in any manner. I had contacted Mr. Gary Moore at his email who responded giving document attachments etc. As per him for collection of fund one has to come physically to London or hire an accredited attorney. On informing them about my inability to come, they have hired an attorney Barrister Johm Brown of a firm named M/s. Law & Equity Chambers, Uni Park Road, Nottingham (email@example.com)tele +447024026356. He has asked to deposit USD 3995/= towards making of fund release documents.
