    Dear

    I appreciate your prompt reply to my legal inquiry. This is a breach of contract matter. Please, run a conflict check on the adverse party, .................. and also state your hourly rate and the required retainer fee. The goods delivered in good condition valued at $399,950.00 (Three Hundred and Ninety Nine Thousand, Nine Hundred Fifty Dollars). We received an initial deposit of $100,000.00 before the goods were delivered. Due date for the balance payment of $299,950.00 was the 5th of May, 2017 as stipulated in the sales invoice.

    Do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions.

    I look forward to a timely response from you.

    I am glad there is no conflict of interest that will prevent your office from representing my firm. I would prefer a polite approach to this matter in order to protect our ongoing business relationship. My expectation of your services for now will be within the scenario of writing and sending a demand letter to my debtor. I believe this will get the much needed attention and probably bring them to the table to negotiate a payment plan with us. However, litigation should be seen as the last resort in this case. Please, forward your retainer agreement, stating your hourly rate and the required retainer amount of $5,000 for my review and signature. Thank you for your interest in representing my firm. I look forward to working with you.

    Then, when you call, you can tell the phone is being forwarded to another number and a man with a foreign accent answers.

    I am in receipt of the retainer agreement. I will review it and return the executed copy along with the retainer check and will also include copies of all the relevant documents.
    Thank you for accepting to represent my firm. You will hear from me very soon.
    Sincerely,
    Peter Holt

    This seemed way too easy. I called and spoke to "Mr. Holt" and he has a very bizarre accent, somehow Dutch/Nigerian? It is hard to describe.

    Glad I checked this Peter Holt out. I bet he has some bad checks to send my way.

    They have checks to send you. It is a gang.

    I will send those checks to the State Attorney's Office, and see what they can do. Unfortunately, probably nothing.

    They need to go to the FBI.

    Pretty close to nothing. It's mail fraud anyway, so federal. As Miyu says, the FBI wants those checks but you could always cc to the US Postal Inspection Service if you got those checks in the mail.
