  1. OMG...I received the same email from the same Chan Yung. It went directly to my junk folder. The website huataiwire.com looked legitimate so I sent a reply email and put the contact info listed on the website. I was suspicious because the original email came from @cabanova.com and not @huataiwire.com. The "Chan Yung" person sent back an email with chanyoung@huataiwire.com. Notice the difference in spelling of Yung vz Young. What I found hilarious was that these people are emailing me when its 2am and 4am in Taiwan. The FBI need to catch these people but the online complaint doesnt seem to go anywhere. This is the third time I've filed a complaint hoping the FBI would step in to try and 'catch' them in the act but no luck. I'm glad I've never gotten caught in this crap. If it's too good to be true it usually is. I live by that motto and it has never failed me. My law license is too precious to throw away like that. I've read online about numerous attorneys falling prey to this scam. Once the attorney trust account is affected its months of legal wranglings to sort it out.
