I received the following email just a few minutes ago and decided to Google before responding. Glad I did.

I have previously sent you an email, please confirm the receipt of this mail due to the urgency of this matter. If you are not in position to represent us at the moment kindly advice immediately. After a careful review, we decided to contact you to represent our company in North America. CHOKO BOVEKI LTD is a company in Europe,Asia and Africa We would require your legal representation on our customers in your region . We are of the opinion that a reputable attorney is required to represent us in North America in order for us to recover monies due to our organization by overseas customers, and as well follow up with these accounts. In order to achieve these objectives a good and reputable law firm like yours will be required to handle this service. We understand that a proper Attorney Client agreement must be entered into by both parties. This will be done immediately we receive your letter of acceptance.

Subject: Counsel



I am David Lloyd Packer, an engineering contractor based in the United Kingdom. I found your company profile online and wish to request mediation in a matter arising with a Crane network dealer in your State. As a matter of fact, on April 24, 2010, I signed a purchase order for a used 1998 Demag AC205 All Terrain Crane, as advertised by this dealer on the Crane network Website. This particular crane was initially valued at $425,000USD, but following through on some negotiation a bargain was reached for $395,000USD, which was subsequently paid into the dealer's account on April 30, 2010.

Invariably, I was assured that shipment will be effected by May 21, 2010. But to my utmost disappointment, I did not receive the relevant shipping documents during this period. Upon further prodding, I was informed the crane had been sold for $422,000USD to another buyer and it was therefore out of stock. Also, I was offered a different model/type of crane as replacement for that which was originally paid for, but given that I had ordered this particular model/type of crane for specific reasons, I declined the offer and requested an immediate refund. It has been 3 months since this request was made but the dealer has not been forthcoming with the refund. Please let me know if you can be of assistance in this matter, as I have suffered enough setbacks as a result of this act of betrayal.

This one is currently being sent to lawyers in Hawaii and Australia from lyndacheng02@gmail.com:
Aloha ,

My name is Lynda Cheng. I am a contacting your firm in regards to a
divorce settlement with my ex husband (Randy L. Cheng) who resides in
your jurisdiction.I am currently on assignment in Japan.

We had an out of court agreement for him to pay $350,450.00 plus legal
fees. He has only paid me $50,000 since .I am hereby seeking your firm
to represent me in collecting the balance from him. He has agreed
already to pay me the balance but it is my belief that a Law firm like
yours is needed to help me collect this payment from my ex -husband or
litigate this matter if he fails to pay as promised.

Subject: RE: LAWSUIT



Hello

Thanks for your urgent reply. I represent Premier Textiles Limited. We are 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.

We believe that a normal scenario will require a phone call or demand letter from you to our seller if your services is retained. 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.


TCE Corporation
26 Burnham Drive,
West Hartford, CT 06110-1606


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 for Machinery Equipments 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 August of 2010 and our calculation shows that delivery is about five 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 120 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 document. This will enable your firm start working on this case.


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



Sincerely,
Steven Duhre.
