I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.
Unfortunately, this is positively a scam. There is no such thing as a “basic traveller allowance” (bta) in ANY country, and the only people whoever request money for it are scammers.
Do not send money or even continue corresponding with them. Block their number and email. This person is a criminal and deserves no explantion.
I am sorry. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but I do not want you victimized by this thief.If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

Is there any way that I can get back some initial charges already he collected from me?
Immigration Lawyer: Lorens35, Lawyer replied 7 months ago
Thank you for following up.
If you can find them in the UK you can report them to Scotland Yard. Otherwise, they are operating annonymously somewhere else, beyond the reach of the courts or law enfocement agencies, and they will just disappear.
Again, I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
