Finally...

The facts in the email did not make sense. I live in Idaho Falls. "Brianna" claimed her husband lived in my town. I asked what he did. "she" emailed back and said he was a surgeon for the UN. Since we have no UN office in town, I went on the web and found this post. I wrote back and said that I would need $50,000 cash to discuss the matter further, and that I don't cash checks.
Also, if you look at the e-mail header, it show that the originating IP address is Nigeria - see full header and last line below:

He tried the same thing with me, so I check, and here it is. How can they think people would fall for that? I practice in California and the woman's decree was from a Korean Court. E-Mail a contract? I rather loose a client than fall for that. Beware. Happy holidays.
And yet people fall for it. While greed is not technically an emotion, it clouds reason.

@ JHS,

So many good questions. Let me try and answer. Yes, a Japanese court document is in Japanese. It's funny how that works. ;) And I don't know why they are trying to place Oita in South Korea but apparently they still do.

Yes, the 41.71.174.216 IP address is Nigeria. Most of the catchers are in Nigeria. The fake checks are from Canada.

The ultimate bounce on a check in the U.S. can be maybe 6 years. Usually it is within 60 days I think. Banks are becoming a little more aware of this problem so they do something about it.

If you do get an international check you can always take it to your bank and ask them about it. They might send it for foreign collection. That will take time and the scammers will press you to send money quickly but people need to protect themselves and don't protect the criminals.

The image capcha thing-- yes it's difficult but we had to install that to prevent massive spamming here which was happening.
