"Barrister Marcus Hopkin" tells me he is a solicitor. I think he'd better go back to law school. I think lesson one would probably tell him the difference between a barrister and a solicitor (look it up on the internet if your country doesn't use the English/Welsh law system).
As a colleague of mine lost her sister and brother in law in the London bombings, I find this scam offensive - as are all scams which quote real disasters to add an air of fake authenticity.
This lowlife, scum bag of a scammer (apologies for language here folks) has no intention of sending you money. He is just hoping you will fall for his scam and start sending him money. Ignore him.
