Subject: Re: I was referred to you by the Bar Referral Services. Do advise if your firm handles Litigation Cases.

Hello Attorney,

We appreciate you giving us a chance to discuss our case. We placed an order for some goods from Fastenal Company back in July 2019 and the terms of the sales contract requires we to pay 50% of the total cost of the ordered goods before delivery and the balance after we have received the same goods. However, after we made the 50% initial deposit, we did not receive any goods as required. The goods ought to be delivered in August 2019. More time was given to them to deliver the goods which they were still unable to meet with. Hence, we requested for a refund.

We have made several efforts to have them refund the initial deposit, but to no avail. We have therefore decided to resort to legal means since there is an existing agreement prior to the transaction. Find below details of the supplier for your conflict check.

Fastenal Company.
United States

We have suffered so much loss as a result of this failed transaction and we are ready to proceed with litigation if the need should arise. Let us know the best way to have this issue tackled and we will comply as long as we get results. Furthermore , we have concerns and would like you to respond in detail in your reply.

Are they any foibles you see in this case? If litigation is involved, Due to the pandemic the distance gives us some concern with regards to court appearances. How can this be handled?
How much is your legal fee? Do you charge on an hourly basis or contingency? What should we expect from you? Any guarantees? Please advise on your assessment of this case. A quick response will be appreciated.

I received this, too. Does anyone know how this fake-check scam is supposed to work? Scary stuff.

They send you a fake check, you deposit it. They request you to wire money quickly into some overseas account, you wire, then the check bounces and you owe a lot of money to your bank.

I was dumb enough to go so far as getting a signed engagement agreement before I sobered up and realized what was going on. They're pretty sophisticated in their "documentation" as I had a "Sale of Goods Contract" and what purported to be evidence of wire transfers . . . .

Thanks for posting I just got the letter today and came across this site while doing an internet search.


We received this as well. If he is sending us check for our service, how would this benefit him.
