I have heard from a number of attorneys that scam artists are targeting lawyers claiming to need legal help. I have decided to posts these email messages here in case other attorneys receive them and wonder whether they are legitimate. There may be similar scams preying on other professions and businesses.

How Does the Scam Work?

The scam begins by the purported client contacting the attorney or law firm, asking for representation, signing a retainer agreement, and providing evidence of the legal issue. Then, the purported client notifies the lawyer that the matter has been resolved and a check is being sent from the opposing party to the law firm. The purported client tells the attorney to deduct from the payment the law firm’s legal fees and wire the rest to the client. After the firm wires the money to the client, the firm’s bank notifies the firm that the payment was fraudulent (for example, a fake cashier’s check). Unfortunately, the firm has already wired the money and wired funds cannot be recovered.

What You Should Know About the Scam

First, it is worth noting that the people named below are generally not real people. They are aliases developed by scam artists.

Second, the aliases are often very developed, including websites, business listings in directories, and in one case, what appeared to be a Dunn & Bradstreet profile. While your purported client may be false, the purported defendant is often a real company.

In one case, I spoke with a purported defendant who said attorneys around the country had been contacting him. Needless to say, a lot of people were wasting a lot of time on the scam. I have heard of at least one attorney falling victim to this scam.

How You Can Help Stop this Scam

If you receive other scam emails, please add them in the comments section below. Fortunately, some attorneys will be cautious and will search online for the names included in the email before engaging in the fraud. This web page will be a growing list of these fraudulent emails.

Also, if you have received one of these emails, please add a comment regarding the date and your general location, so we can track the activities of these scam artists.

Other Sites with Attorney Scams

Since I started posting scams here, I have encountered other attorney blogs with related scams (and some of the scams I have received). Rather than posting scams I receive here that are already online, I will be listing the sites where I found the scam posted.

Examples of Scam Emails

Without further ado, here are samples of the emails I have received:

Thanks for your reply. I represent Steven Lawson Tex Co Ltd based in United Kingdom. We got your contact information from the online Lawyers Directory as a result of our search for reliable firm to provide legal services as requested.

We request your representation to counsel us in litigation and enable us collect a debt owed to us in the amount of $900,000.00USD by a delinquent seller in your jurisdiction. We are of the opinion that once our presence is established in your state via a legal representative, our seller will have no option but comply with payment request and accompanied with legal action and litigation will push for the accounts to be paid to effectively.

We believe that a normal scenario will require a phone call or demand letter from you to our seller if your services is retained and litigation should be applied as a last resort.

We understand the concept of running a conflict check that is why we are providing our delinquent seller located in your state for your conflict check and to enable you present to us your retainer agreement for your services.

Falconer’s Cleaners & Laundry,
1229 E Lake Street
Minneapolis, MN 55407-1620

We will like to have a telephone conference with you on this issue as to let you know further details of this transaction.

We happened to have place an order of Machinery Equipment worth $1,800,000.00, and they demanded we pay 50 percent of the funds before delivering our products. Payment to the seller was made in January of 2011 and our calculation shows that delivery is above three Months late, for the regular purchase agreement requires seller to effect goods not later than 60 days upon payment or legal action may be enforced if delivery delay exceeds 90 days.

It will be very helpful if we receive your retainer agreement for review. This will enable our board decide on the conditions of the retainer in our next board meeting. Also once we have reviewed your agreement I will forward you supporting documents i.e., proof of payment, sales invoice, wire transfer slip. This will enable your firm start working on this case. I will also call you to follow up on this matter once your firm has agreed to take on this case.

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

We are of the opinion that once our presence is established in your state via a legal representative our seller will have no option but comply with payment request and accompanied with legal action and litigation will push for the accounts to be paid attention to effectively.

Although we believed that litigation should be applied as a last resort as we intend to preserve the relationship we have with our seller. Though we do hope not 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 seller know that litigation may be enforced if the option becomes necessary.

We understand the concept of running a conflict check that is why we are providing our delinquent seller located in your state for your conflict check and to enable you present to us your retainer agreement for your services.

Allied Electronics Inc,



This particular seller owes approx. $950,720.00 and the delivery is overdue as our regular purchase agreement requires seller to effect goods not later than 60 days upon payment or legal action may be enforced if delivery delay exceeds 90 days. We happened to have placed an order of enclosures, racks and cabinet materials worth $1,901,440.00, and they demanded we pay 50 percent of the funds before delivering our products. Payment for this seller was made in 10th February of 2010 and our calculation shows that delivery is a Months late.

Also once we have reviewed your agreement I will forward you supporting documents i.e., proof of payment, sales invoice, so your firm can start working on this case.

Hi Counsel,

My name is Naomi Jean Dyer. I am contacting your firm in regards to a divorce settlement with my ex-husband (Ashak R.Dyer) who resides in your jurisdiction. I am currently on assignment in Asia. We had an out of court agreement (Collaborative Law Agreement) for him to pay $848,900.00 plus legal fees. He has only paid me $184,000.00

I am hereby seeking your firm to assist in collecting the balance from
him. He has already agreed to pay me the balance but it is my belief that a Law firm like yours is needed to help handle the collection process from my ex or litigate this matter if he fails to pay as promised.

Attention: Aaron Hall

I tried calling a couple of times and with the time difference (+16 hrs EST) it is difficult to gauge the best time to reach you.

We agreed under this Collaborative Law Agreement for a one time cash settlement of $848,900.00. To his credit, he has paid me $184,000.00 but still owing $664,900, He is aware of my intention to seek legal actions.

I want you to act as my attorney in the collection of this payment from Ashak Rustom Chipman. You are to represent me in connection with any matter with the resolution of the settlement expressed in the collaborative law agreement reached. I understand that if my ex-husband does not voluntarily pay, it may be necessary to file a legal proceeding against him.

I will be pleased to provide further information on this matter on request. I expect this to be a non-litigation matter. I have just advised him of my intention on retaining your firm. This was an out of Court agreement, therefore I never dealt in front of Court for divorce. This agreement is private and never approved by a Judge.

I am having troubles attaching my agreement files, could you provide me with a fax line and give details on retainer procedure.

    Beware of Christine Hoffmann!

    The fake case to handle:

    My name is Christine Hoffmann and my address is 48 Av. Hermes,
    Candiac, Quebec J5R 3R7, Canada. On March 4th, 2013, I lend Michael
    Wolf whom now resides in your jurisdiction the sum of $620.000.00 with
    8.5% interest on two years fixed term and to pay back March 4th, 2015.
    He had only paid me $140,000 but still owing $480,000.

    He used to live here in Quebec before the loan was made, but has ever
    since relocated to your jurisdiction (Athens). I was advised to seek
    legal assistance in my borrower new jurisdiction which is why I
    contacted you to act as my counsel in retrieving these funds. There
    has not been any attorney working on this case. Different payment
    dates have been promised and I still have not received anything. My
    last contact with my borrower, I was told I would receive payment not
    later than Mid April 2015 and till now, nothing has been paid.

    Kindly let me know what your fees would be in order for me to inform
    Mr. Wolf to expect contact from you, as you have been authorized to
    act on my behalf. On your approval, I would like to forward your
    details to him, so he knows a law firm is now involved, and that I
    could sue for breach of agreement if he does not oblige to the terms
    of the loan agreement. I would like to give him this last chance to
    fulfills his obligations before we start legal proceeding if need be.

    Please do get back to me so I could furnish you with the required
    details to contact my borrower on my behalf. I know he respects the
    law, and wouldn’t want to be litigated. Before we proceeds, kindly
    forward your Fee / Client Engagement Agreement for my review, and if
    satisfied with terms and conditions upon receipt; I shall make
    immediate provision for the fee for you to begin work.

    Thank you for your anticipated co-operation and understanding. Contact

    My name is Danny Shafrir,I am the Head Architect at GPAD Architects here in the Uk.

    We specialise mainly high end architectural designs and we also do renovations of historic and listed ones.

    I am contacting you because we have an unpaid debt issue against a former client in Charleston County, SC, We are owed $170,000 USD in unpaid bills for design services.

    Our efforts to reach him has been futile so an old friend recommended i retained local counsel,he reckons that should get his attention.

    Everything about this company checked out. So I’m not sure if they’re legit and being victimized or whether the scam artists are extremely sophisticated and covered their tracks to the extent you could pull up info on this company thru google going all the way back to 2003. I know the “defendant” is a legit individual who was victimized and notified our local bar of the scam through his in-house counsel. I talked to this individual briefly through an email, and basically told him if you can work it out great, if not, call me and we’ll see if something can be done. Three days later there was a check on my desk in an envelope for the entire amount with a voicemail from a guy claiming to be Chris Ploutarhou. I called back and he asked me to cash the check, deduct the fee, and then wire him the money. But he asked if there was anyway we can wire the money that day because he had a retreat to attend in Germany. I told him there was absolutely no chance that we would wire money before the check cleared with the bank, at which point he simply said okay and we hung up. I never did anything with the check because it seemed very suspicious and then two days later I rec’d the email from our local bar about this exact individual attempting to scam people around the county where I work. Why would anyone EVER wire money before the check clears?????? Hopefully amongst lawyers this scam works 0% of the time. Here it is:


    Christopher Ploutarhou of gpad Architecture & Interior Design UK here.

    We provide high end architectural and design services.

    I have a breach of contract issue against a client in Princeton New Jersey ,i am owed $170,000 USD in unpaid debts for architectural and design services rendered.

    A friend recommended i contacted a local attorney,she reckons that will get the client’s attention which is why i you are receiving this email.

    Here’s one ..

    Phil Coffey – a reputable architect in the UK – was in the States visiting when his dog was run over. An uncle put him in touch with an attorney friend, who he hired (and paid a $3,000 retainer) and a settlement was negotiated immediately. Unfortunately, the attorney, who was a sole practitioner, died before the agreement was consummated, and now the other party isn’t paying.

    Looked up the attorney, called the phone number, which directed me to the Court appointed attorneys who are wrapping up his practice. There’s no such client, no such file, no such retainer.

    Quote “client” a retainer – he can’t tender it in local funds, he’d have to wrire it in . . . blah blah blah.

  • Anne Brady
    November 6, 2014, 9:26 pm

    Hello Anne,

    Thanks for reaching out. We contacted Walgreen and requested they give us a price list of some goods we needed urgently. They responded confirming those goods were available and at a great price too, so we decided to deal with them. We placed an order for importation of medical equipments from the said company after a signed agreement. We met all the conditions contained in the agreement including the 50% payment due before the delivery of the goods. We had understanding and these orders are expected to arrive here after one month of payment. We wrote them after one month of the payment as the time we agreed upon has elapsed, to make them aware that we have run out of patience and want our money refunded. We have tried to resolve this issue amicably but our entire plea has landed on deaf ears, which is why we have decided to put an end to it finally. We know we cannot do this alone again, which is why we need a reputable firm like yours to step in.

    This has lingered for months and we have sourced the equipments from another company after notifying them. Note, that our agreement is that they will refund the 50% we paid them if they fail to supply the said goods before the stipulated date stated in the agreement. After much pressures and threats of lawsuit, they made a part payment of the 50% sent to them. We have been in communication with them daily and attached to this email, you will find all documents regarding this transaction for your read-through. In our last correspondence, walgreen asked us to give them more time to complete the payment and we did. Till date we have not heard nor receive any payment from them. We therefore want you to take legal actions to compel the return of our money without further notice to Walgreen. Below are the company details.

    PHOENIX, AZ 85023

    Our business have suffered so much because of this time wasting, and has caused a great strain on our company’s operational capital. As you may understand, losing seven-figures would indeed be devastating to nearly any Business, besides we like to keep a very healthy relationship with people we do business with. We are tired of letting this company take us for a ride and see us like fools. Even if it means litigation at this point, we are ready. What we require from your firm is to provide legal advice, and bring actions in court against Walgreen, if need be. We would like to know a few things about your firm and also how you intend to handle this case. Find our concerns below.

    • What kind of background or experience do you have in this specific area? • Have you actually taken a similar case to trial before? • How will you be charging for your representation? If it is hourly billing – how often do you bill, what items are billable, and what are the hourly rates? • What are your firm’s communication policies? • What are the possible outcomes and alternatives of my matter? • Do you recommend exploring settlement or attempting to negotiate with the other side? • How familiar are you with the jurisdiction that the case will be handled in? However, if you are able to help us with legal services do have your fee agreement prepared and forwarded to us for proper review of your terms and conditions to enable us know if we can employ your services. If you have any questions contact me personally anytime by email or call. You would find contact details at my signature block.

    I am presently away on a reconstruction contract. I will give you a follow up call as soon as time permit hopefully, within the week.

    Once again, thank you so much for making this happened.

    I just received an email from Liudmila Yuldasheva – googled her and came up with your site. Great service, thanks! I’m in New Zealand.

    I just got an email from Liudmila Yuldasheva with the same bit about divorce settlements. Last week I got a similarly worded email from a Jennifer Wong, with an invalid return email address.

    Cheers, guys, this saved me a lot of time.

    I’m in Minneapolis.

    Bruce Shattock contacted our law office in Zanesville, Ohio in late November. He used a fake Citibank Official check. Fortunately no money was lost.
