George Bulden loans money

This variation on the business loan scam is circulating around New Zealand lawyers. The scammer can be located at the defunct email address rarebooksdepot@gmail.com and sometimes uses the name of a genuine person resident in New Zealand as the borrower. Another “borrower” name used is John Anderson.

Hello Barrister,

My name is George Bulden and I am in need of your legal expertise. I loaned $295,000 to [Name removed], the money which was to be paid back in 2 years but he has not done so yet. Please I will need your help to file a law suit against him to recover the money I’m owed and I truly hope you can assist me with this.

Sincerely
