Top of the day, and would you mind recovering a debt owed to me

This is another variation of the standard “debt recovery” scams.

Dear Counsel, 
 
Top of the day to you. 
 
Pardon me for whatever inconveniences, if any, that this mail may cause you but I require your assistance in recovering a debt owed to me by a business partner of mine, Mr. Samuel Bendikson, in the amount of US$1,850,000. The debt was as a result of a loan he obtained from me which was used in executing some construction work sometime in 2011. The loan was for 24 months with an interest rate of 8.75%. The capital and interest were supposed to have been paid by May 15th, 2013 but Mr. Bendikson has only paid US$192,000. 
 
So, I seek your advise and possible legal representation against Mr. Bendikson in collecting the debt. Please advise if this is something you can handle for me so that I can provide you with the relevant document pertaining to the matter. 
 
Kind regards,

Daichi Nakamura
