Barrister Jonathan Gray is a scammer — or more precisely, a scammer is using the name “Barr. Jonathan Gray” to try to hook people into his scam.
This is a standard “advance fee fraud” that promises to cut you in on a piece of the action, as long as you’ll assist in getting money out of the country (Hong Kong in this case). If you offer to assist, “Barrister Jonathan” will insist that you pay “advance fees” to grease the transaction, and if you pay up, he’ll disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.
