With my toast and tea this morning I also had an email from Colin Wong. He tells me that I have the same name as a client of his who has died from a heart condition brought on by the death of his entire family in a plane crash in Malaysia. (I'm called Smith, a common name I know, but I doubt if many people in Malaysia are called Smith!)
Anyhow he wants me to help him dispose of $18m.

As ever, Barrister Wong doesn't exist. At least not as a barrister. He's a scammer. He wants you to send him money, not the other way around. If you do reply he will ask for a fee to send you the money. There is no money. Delete the email and don't reply to it.
