If you're a US-based attorney in New Zealand, you're in!

17 July 2019

Fraudsters fire their ill-drafted attempts across the world. Sometimes they misfire. "In your jurisdiction" is a commonly-used way of including as many locations as possible, as is "in your area" in this version:


"My firm is in need of a US based attorney in your area to assist us with drafting a purchase and sales agreement with a local buyer. We are based in Europe but the rig is currently located in the USA.

"I will send you more information if you able to take this matter.

"If not, a referral will be appreciated.
