“I am contacting your firm in regards to a divorce settlement…”
This email scam has been doing the rounds for a number of years. The names change, but the wording remains largely unaltered.
Dear Prospective Counsel
My name is Zaira Jyong. I am contacting your firm in regards to a divorce settlement with my ex husband (Allen Hoshiko) who resides in your jurisdiction. I am currently in Japan.
We had a settlement agreement for him to pay $950,000.00 plus legal fees. He has only paid me $251,000.00 since . I am hereby seeking your firm to represent me in collecting the balance from him. He has agreed already to pay me the balance but it is my belief that a Law firm like yours is needed to help me collect this payment from my ex-husband or litigate this matter if he fails to pay as promised.
