Dear Mrs Tiachi...

Dear Mrs Tiachi,

Re: Divorce Settlement

Thank you for your email, which I received this morning.

I am sorry to hear that your husband McConnell has only paid $183,000.00 out of your agreed divorce settlement of $496,500.00 plus legal fees, and note that you would like my firm's assistance in collecting the balance.

You say that your husband resides in my jurisdiction, i.e. England and Wales, and that you are currently on assignment in South Korea. I am somewhat confused therefore as to why you quote the settlement figures in dollars, rather than South Korean won or British pounds. Perhaps the divorce has left you a little... disoriented.

Of greater import, however, is your misapprehension that I have, or work for, a law firm. Unfortunately, I gave up practising three years ago, and therefore do not have a firm's bank account through which any money could be laundered collected.

You ask me to "kindly advice immediately". I am happy to do so. My advice is that you should stop sending these scam emails and get a proper job.

Yours faithfully,

John Bolch

P.S. One more thing: I am a solicitor, not counsel.
