Kazuo Miyoko: I want to hire your services!

This is a reasonably long-standing scam which quickly morphs into a version of the Collaborative Law Agreement scam (further details here).

Two things are worth noting:

  • The name Kazuo Miyoko has been used widely in email scams targeting lawyers. This is probably because the scammers have either forged or stolen a passport which contains an apparently genuine picture of Kazuo Miyoko.
  • The greeting (“I want to hire your services!”) is a variation on more formal ones. Some emails also contain the following message in their subject line: ATTN: your services needed!!!
