So I write back asking more information. Then we get the classic phishing line. If you kick around the site a bit you recognize this is just a redraft of the classic Family Lawyer scam.

Dear You,
I was Referred by George P. Kickliter and He told me to contact you. I am currently living in Japan and my husband live in Nebraska. I tried calling a couple of times and with the time difference(+13hrs EST) it is a little bit difficult to pick the best time to hit on phone you vice verse. We agreed under Collaborative Law Agreement for a one time cash settlement of $450,000.00 usd to his credit, he has paid me $104,000.00 usd but still owing $346,000.00 usd He is aware of my intention to seek legal actions .The lawyer that helped me with the matter earlier is retired now. I will be pleased to provide further information on this matter on request.I expect this to be a non-litigation matter. please let me know if you can handle this and also i would provide the Collaborative Law Agreement to you and also employ your service which would be duly paid for. Thank you and have a pleasant day.
