Jayen Pack and that divorce settlement

The criminals who try to defraud lawyers by posing as clients have a well-tried set of precedents. An old favourite has reappeared in New Zealand. As usual, phrases such as "Dear counsel", "in your jurisdiction" and "we had a court agreement" should be an instant giveaway.

Dear Counsel,

My name is Jayen Pack. I am contacting your firm in regards to a divorce settlement with my ex husband ( Piper Pack ) who resides in your jurisdiction. I live in Canada. We had a court agreement for him to pay $578,000.00 plus legal fees. He has only paid me $78,000.00USD 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.

Sincerely,

Jayen Pack
