This is a typical fake client email directed to lawyers. The scammer pretends to be a client with a claim against another company, party, etc. The lawyer is engaged and sends a demand letter. Lo and behold, the other party quickly settles and sends a check (usually a bogus cashier\'s check or similar). The lawyer deposits it to the lawyer\'s trust account and then wires a check to the \"client\". A week or two later, the bounced check comes back and the lawyer\'s bank charges the lawyer\'s account for the loss.

Here is the scam email:

Subject: Copyright Infringement Issue


Attn Sir,

I present to you a case of Copyright Infringement Issue between my company and another business associate who has betrayed my trust for his company and violated our agreed and signed copyright agreement.

I seek a good firm who if retained will be able to handle this issue first of all within the scenario of a demand letter to them towards amicable settlement as agreed or we go to litigation.

Let me know of your charges which we are ready to pay and should you give consent to this and ready to take up this case, i shall furnish you with all the relevant documents relating this matter.

Hope to read from you soon.

Regards,

Lee Fong
