File Under: Strange Communications I Have Received (Are There Really Lawyers Stupid Enough to Fall for This?)

by | Dec 7, 2009

I’ve been getting emails like the one below for months.  Maybe if I get one from a prospective client in Nigeria I’ll head over for a visit …..

Dear Desired Lawyer/Lawfirm,

Greetings to you from Nippon Steel Corporation

With all due respect, please kindly confirm the receipt of this mail  if you are in a position to represent on our company in matters of  delinquent accounts.

We contact you to represent our company after a careful review of your profile. We are of the opinion that you represent us in the United States of America  in order for us to recover monies due to our  organization by our American clients.

In order to achieve these objectives a good and reputable lawyer or law firm will be required to handle this service. Please advice once  you take in this issue.

P.S. If you are not in the position to represent us we would be very glad if you could refer us to any law firm in North America or Canada  that could.

Once more thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to read this mail.

Your truly,
Akio Mimura
Director and Chairman
Nippon Steel Corporation
6-3, Otemachi 2-chome, Chiyoda-ku,
Tokyo 100-8071, Japan.
