Young Yu "an foreign attorney for a Korean law office"

16 November 2016

Fraudulent emails from someone posing as a Korean attorney have been received by New Zealand lawyers.

Note that while the name may be changed regularly, the format and phraseology of the fraud usually remains the same.

From: Young Yu <>
Subject: Fwd: Inquiry 


I am an foreign attorney working for a Korean law office.
I am looking for a NZ attorney in Auckland area for my client.
My client already obtained judgments against debtors (a individual and companies together)
My client knows that the debtor stays in Auckland and he set up a new company there to avoid his chase.
The claimed amount is about USD 5 Million.
If you are interested in taking the case, please let me know with your basis fee structure.
