'should' has several meanings, but here it is used to indicate a possible future event (the event here is, 'following this advice'). Using 'should' is somewhat similar to using an 'if' in the sentence. For instance, an equivalent sentence is, "If anyone follows this advice, they could find himself in trouble"

You can use "happen to" as a synonym: "Anyone who happens to follow this advice..."
