Beware of purported email from Ryuji Kurihara
New Zealand lawyers have been sent an email purportedly from a genuine law firm somewhere in the United States asking for them to act on behalf of a Japanese company (which also exists) called the Nippon Aircraft Supply Co Ltd and headed by a Mr Ryuji Kurihara.
The email is a fraudulent attempt to trick New Zealand lawyers and should be deleted.
