  1. i just received a similar e-mail :
    Dear Counsel


    I was Referred by George P. Kickliter and He told me to send the documents to you. I am currently living in Japan and ex husband TOSHIMASA HIROSHI live in your jurisdiction and the divorce decree is in in your jurisdiction as well. I tried calling a couple of times and with the time difference(+13hrs EST) it is a little bit difficult to gauge the best time to reach you vice verse. We agreed under this Collaborative Law Agreement for a one time cash settlement of $914,000.00 usd to his credit, he has paid me $104,000.00 usd but still owing $810,000.00 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. I have already advised him I am planning on retaining your firm.. Please send me an agreement/ retainer form so that we can proceed. Also send me the payment information of your firm just in case my ex-husband wants to make the full payment he owes payment without further delays or possible litigation.

    Thank you and have a pleasant day.

    Dear Ms. Lee:

    Please provide the full Court name and location, and the Case Number under which you were divorced. Without that information I am unable to determine whether this office can be of any assistance to you.

    Sincerely,

    Good Day Counsel ,

    My name is Pamela J. Lee, I am contacting your firm in regards to making a
    collection in relation to a divorce settlement initiated in March 2008
    withmy ex husband Robert Freeland in your jurisdiction. We mutually
    agreed under a Collaborative Participation Law Agreement to go our
    separate ways after 22 Years of marriage. Robert had agreed to pay me
    $681,500.00 under terms of the agreement so that I can settle down and
    to his credit he has paid me $54,000.00 but with a balance of $627,500.00.

    I am currently visiting my husband in Tokyo for 12 weeks and I am seeking
    your legal assistance in sealing the agreement and making collection. I
    willbe providing further information upon your request; I understand that
    being remarried does not void the agreement? Prior to our separation due to
    irreconcilable differences, I was a good house wife catering for our two
    children.

    Please get back to me if this is a case you can undertake. He has agreed
    to pay me the balance and act courteously and in good faith, but it is my
    belief that a Law firm like yours is needed to help me make collection or
    litigate the matter if he fails to pay as promised. I look forward to your
    response, thank you.

    Pamela Lee.

  3. does anybody know how the scam works? Our office has been getting these emails, and we take turns responding for our own amusement. We ask them to produce documents and they come back with the most ridiculous bs. but i still can't figure out how the scam works. how will they eventually get any money out of this?

  4. They have the alleged debtor send you a big cashiers check. Looks legit to the bank and you. You deposit the big check into your trust account. The phisher asks you to send over a portion of the big check (for the collection of the debt) and keep the rest of the money for your time. You send them money from your trust account, while the bank processes the check. Eventually, the bank calls you and says, the check is bad. By this time your check has cleared with the scammers. Now your trust account is overdrawn and you have all sorts of new troubles.

    The variation is that the alleged client (phisher) sends you a retainer larger than necessary. The phisher tells you to send the difference back. You do. See above.

  5. The address given for the original posting (KIMI TOSHIO) is for the New Sanno Hotel in downtown Tokyo. Its a U.S. Naval Joint Services Activity-based hotel aimed for service members.

    Interesting...

  6. I believe George Paul Kickliter is either ficticious or his identity was stolen. I had just recently had fallen victim an internet inheritance scam that is being conducted by someone by the name of Johnson Abulavi from Lome Togo- could also be fictious name too, I realized this unfortunately after I had already sent him $450. In the meantime I have been stringing him along and asking that he verify that he is who he says he is. So any way he sends me the power of attorney document that he supposedly paid for that I requested along with the receipt I requested. He also sent me a copy of his supposed Authorisation to practice law-the only problem is the name that appears on this is not Johnson Brad Abulavi- it is KICKLITER GEORGE PAUL. So when I did a search to see if anything came up with regards to this person, it lead me to here.

    So I hope this is helpful to anyone even though it is coming several years later.
