Collaborative Law Agreement scam alive and well
New Zealand lawyers continue to be bothered by scammers with the Collaborative Law Agreement fraud.
This dates back a number of years, but is still be emailed from time to time.
A recent example:
"My name is Anita Pirez . I am contacting your firm in regards to a divorce settlement with my ex husband Steve Pirez who resides in your Country. We were based in United States, but i am still currently in United States. We had an out of court Agreement (Collaborative Law Agreement) for him to pay $180,450.00 plus legal fees. He has only paid me $44,000 since. I am hereby seeking your firm for assistance 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 payment from my ex-husband or litigate this matter if he fails to pay as promised.
