Attorney Scam/ Real Estate Broker scam

Hello I am posting this as it is getting out of control. 33,000 US Attorneys have been pin pointed by a group of Nigerian check scammers working out of canada.

Attorneys if you are emailed by anyone asking if you can act as a collection agent for their over due accounts, most likely by Chinese companies, do not follow through. They will issue you a Citibank cashiers check in the range of $432,000. to $898,000. Many times the checks will clear and then you wire the funds, Citibank will hold you accountable for any funds that are sent to the scammers, they are using accounts in China, Japan, Maylasia to name a few. The letters will look like this and is one of the names being used. Attorneys please check with your National Bar Association and ask them why they did not notify you, as they have been asked by many Law Enforcement officials to please send warnings to the 33,000 of you that have been selected, due to a company selling your names and addresses. They flat out refused to warn you.

Citibank is not the only bank which has been affected there are many but right now, it is Citibank who is well aware of this and are working with Law Enforcement to stop these crimes.

Here is a format they are using, names will be changed by each catcher.

Hi Guys and Gals, Miyu asked me to post this, I have loads of emails, let me show you the second letter that I sent to ABA, American Bar Association, they are ignoring mine and Bobiegos emails, I sent mine through t fraudaid warning email account, nothing back. Ignorance does not make any one innocent, let alone the ABA.

I wrote this August 6th was my second attempt and I sent it from my fraud aid box, they do not care, the amounts of losses from Ma to june are staggering.


Karl, I wrote to you several weeks ago and have not heard back from you. I know Bob has also tried to reach you.
If what we are asking is too much for you all to take on, I understand, but an answer one way or another would be really nice.
So you know I just received a report from Fraud Aid on the damage which has been caused to attorneys all over the United States. I am sure this will surprise you given the nature and stature of who is involved and one would not think that Attorneys could be fooled by Nigerian scammers, but Sir they are and it is costing them and the US economy a great deal of money.
In the months, May, June and July US Attorneys have been conned out of $106,487,597.84, that involved 211 attorneys, that would make each check cashed and wired to the criminals $504,680.55, and mind you , those are only figures of who we have evidence of being victims of a loss.
Now in July alone 76 million was lost. So you see, each month that goes by and each list of 50,000 attorneys that is circulated will create a further problem.
As you were made aware 1 week ago a new list of 50,000 attorneys is being targetted, so please consider what I have given you above, if 211 can be taken off a list of 35,000, then citertainly as money tightens at firms more and more attorneys will be willing to collect past due accounts for 10% of what is collected.
Please give me the courtesy of a reply back.

Lawyer scams.

Members. You can see from the posts by lizzytish, just how much money is being scammed from "professional" people.

This is MASSIVE amounts of money, so if anyone has copies of any of these types of emails please feel free to post them.

If anyone has information that could help and would like to keep it confidential, you can contact any admin or lizzytish direct.

If you so require, it will be kept confidential, lizzytish is 100 % reliable and has the backing of us all on this. Any information would be appreciated, thank you.

Retainership Agreement Format

I've been finding many of these type of emails. It appears to be a follow-up email to an initial format which I'm sure resembles one of those posted by Lizzytish.
Hean Leng Tai <heanlengtai@yahoo.com.hk>
Attention: Harris L. Cohen, Esq

Good day to you and thank you very much for your prompt response to our email. We do appreciate your time in reviewing our request and we will do everything possible to ensure a smooth and hitch free business relationship.

We are ready to work with you to achieve our goal as the importance of your services cannot be over emphasized, while we understand the importance of retaining your services accordingly . Please let us have your retainership agreement for our review.

There have been cases in the past of clients with delinquent payments and we were incapacitated due to international legal boundaries to exert pressure on such clients or commence litigation in such cases. This normally results in very late payments from customers.

We are of the opinion that once our presence is established in your country via a legal representative, our customers will have no option but comply with payment deadlines to avoid legal action and litigation. We believe that a normal scenario will require a phone call or fax from you to our delinquent customers.

We believe that litigation should be applied as a last resort as we intend to retain our relationship with our customers after payments are made. We do not intend to resort to litigation unless all other options are exhausted, but we will like the comfort of knowing that the option is available and letting our customers know that litigation may be enforced if the option becomes necessary.

We understand the concept of running a conflict check that is why we have decided that all cases be treated on a case by case bases and all delinquent accounts dealt with in isolation. Based on this perspective, we are providing one of our delinquent customers for your conflict check and to enable you present to us your Retainer Agreement for your services. Below is one of our deliquent customers namely:

Pacific Steel Casting Co.
1333 2nd St.,
Berkeley, CA 94710
USA

Once we review your retainer agreement, we will apply the same conditions to every delinquent account presented to you. The average delinquent account is estimated at $250,000.00 (Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars) and we have about five delinquent customers in the USA.

Due to the fact that litigation might not be necessary, we assume that these cases are within your jurisdiction and regional boundaries will not be an issue for you. Upon receipt of the Retainer Agreement Document, we will have a list of delinquent accounts available for your review on a case by case basis.

Please also note that we will prefer to be billed on hourly basis. Thus, please have this in mind while you prepare the your retainership agreement for our review.

Please note here that I do not have a good spoken english skill, hence it will be very difficult speaking to me on the phone since you are an American and I am Malaysian. I usually get my email correspondence written with the help of an interpreter, here from Malaysia, whose english is also manageable.

So, please pardon my email correspondence, because of my poor written english, but at least I can communicate with you better via this medium to your understanding.

We thank you for your assistance in this business as we look forward to your prompt response.

Sincerely,

Mr.Hean Leng Tai

Retainership Agreement Reminder Format

And then if the attorney does not respond to the above email they have a follow-up format:

Attention: Attention: Harris L. Cohen, Esq

We contacted you, requesting for your services concerning our Deliquent Account Services there in the United States, of which you responded back to our correspondence, indicating your interest to work/represent us.

We have since responded back to you, detail you of what is required of us from your services and have also requested that you send us a Retainership agreement, so that we can review it, sign and return back to you, so as to confirm our rataining you as our representatives there in the United States, but till date, you are yet to get back to us.

Note that we do not intend to contact any other attorney firm for now, untill you indicate your inability to assist us in this regards. At this point we wait your immediate response to know if you will still be working with us, so we can proceed further, and if your know that it is not within your capacity and capability to represent, still respond back to us, so we can take our next step.

We look forward to hearing from you while thanking you for your anticipated service to our company.

Sincere

Hean Leng Tai

Thats excellent Will and ty DeMaster hopefully we can stop a few victims from losing a half million in about 5 minutes time, thats the average check and there is 85,000 attorneys now being pinpointed for this crime. These are not your average scammers, not all all and since they took 158 MILLION from US attorneys inside of 3 months you can be sure it will be 100 Million just this month.

I'm changing the title of this one because we have now found that scammers are not content with sending large, fake checks to lawyers. They are now targeting real estate brokers and agents as well. They are expanding the scope of their crime.... again. :(

An Update to this, I came across a new format they are using, they have their hands on a list of 20,000 us attorneys and this is a new format they are sending out.

Attention Attorney:

We are seeking for legal opinion in the process of placing a lien on a
Property/asset of a debtor in your jurisdiction. We do not know what the
requirements are, and what is needed for us to engage your services in
this regard. However we are aware of the need of retaining the services of an
attorney
Firstly, that will help us to facilitate the processes. A court judgment
may be required to enforce any lien on a debtor asset, especially when the
Debtor's consent is required to proceed with a lien.
Once you indicate your willingness to handle this case of breach of
contract, we shall provide all necessary evidence/proof of transaction
that will enable us prove our case. Notwithstanding the debtor's position
we intend to proceed with this case, there is need for your services if
your schedule will permit you to work with us.
Treat as urgent.
Sincerely,

Thank you lizzytish. This is a timely warning, as many Attorneys and professional people are used to handling large amounts of money for clients and could become a victim, trying to do the right thing for their clients!
