    The “dissolution of marriage” scam from “Elena Kinoshita” is quite elaborate.
    After minimal investigation (i.e., responding to the scam email pretending to be interested), I obtained “followup” documents via reply email from the scam artist(s) including:
    1. The purported Japanese passport of Elena Kinoshita (with photo);
    2. A purported “Entitlement Settlement Agreement” between Elena Kinoshita and her former spouse;
    3. A “Final Decree of Divorce” purportedly from a Japanese Court; and
    4. A “Collaborative Law Participation Agreement,” which from my initial glance appears to be some form of ADR document.
    I cannot conclude that the above documents are fake. In all reality, they may be genuine but stolen.
    I thought it might be interesting to post these here to illustrate just how deliberate these scams can be.

    • Holly Sanborn Dyar, Esq. says:

      I got the same e-mail. Pretty elaborate with Passport and all. The clues were the non- Kanji signatures of the Judge and attorneys. Also, the e-mail address is from Hong Kong while the author purportedly lives in Japan with a South Korean address.

    • Anonymous says:

      I practice family law in WA. I received the same email – and an email from an attorney in CA, purporting to be the attorney for the husband agreeing to payment. I was actually even provided an address of the alledged husband (research showed no residence located on that specific plot of land). I researched the CA atty and he is listed as an active member of the bar but has no telephone or fax number listed and no email listed. Nor could I find a listing anywhere online (very odd for an active attorney). They are going to great lengths.

      • George E. Merker says:

        I think I got essentially the same thing. I reported it to the CA bar and our bar via Jean McElroy, the WSBA General Counsel. Now Kinoshita wants the check back. Did you do any other follow-up?

    • Concerned Lawyer says:

      I think it is interesting that there is an official seal from the SAPPORO FAMILY COURT, in ENGLISH?! Singed in Cursive?! In Japan, the Documents are written in Kanji. Documents such as these need to be translated and will not carry a normal Western-style signature.
      I concluded that these documents are indeed fake.

      Steer clear my dear.

    • Arlene says:

      Hello everyone,

      I received a similar email after having rec’d a a call from a male requesting my email information (because they don’t speak proper English).

      In the email, “Elena” provides me information, documents, etc. I replied to her email trying to obtain further information (because I thought the documents were fishy – the “seal” seemed suspicious) – and she gave me a response to each of my questions. In the email she requests a retainer agreement. Which really puzzled me, as we haven’t even discussed the possibility of representing her.

      Unsatisfied, I ran an Accurint search on her spouse “Greensberg”, who lives on a street called “Greenberg”. The search provided no results (it also lists the same people having lived there since 2002).

      Best of luck all,

    • South Jersey law firm says:

      I got it as well and have since received TWO “certified” checks in the amount of $437,500.00 that they want me to cash and wire them the funds. I’ve already filed an internet complaint and notified “ScotiaBank” where the ‘check’ was drawn for non-verification and noted the fraud (from a Canadian postmark no less). I’ve received 2 calls today from alleged lawyers seeking the money, one claiming to be calling from Japan (I told him to send me an email confirming his identify – I received an email from “Mogosayi Minozi” who doesn’t even exist per Google) and as noted, a second “certified” check. One was sent via fedex and one was sent via regular mail. Two different senders. I’ve got a pretty good sense of humor, but really, enough already!!

    • George E. Merker says:

      Here in Washington state I got essentially the same email, and a cashier’s check purportedly from Scotiabank, followed by several argumentative emails from a California attorney demanding that I deposit the check. The check was examined by my bank and on the phone with Scotiabank. Now Kinoshita wants the check back. I think the attorney emails are fake too but appear to be from a real CA attorney with a real CA bar #.

    • Rosanna Fox says:

      Same email. I practice in NH.

  2. randywallace says:

    A lawyer friend from South Mississippi recently received the same type package complete with passport. The scams are getting more elaborate, but all typically revolve around a common fact pattern.

    If a potential client proposes a way to quickly extract money from a third party and then wants the lawyer to also quickly forward the proceeds to the client (less the substantial attorney’s fee), it is simply a new version of the old Nigerian 419 scam.

  3. Jenny Jeltes says:

    I’m so glad I googled “Elena Kinoshita” and came across this blog. I received the exact same email and documents as above. “She” was very urgent and seemed amenable to hiring me right away–just as soon as I sent a retention agreement. She also stated that she was on a project in South Korea and could not speak with me due to the time difference. I feigned interest and I’m glad I did not waste more time!

      I Googled as well — but only to see what the scam was about. Being in IP, it’s easier to cut through the bullshit. 🙂

      Oooh and in mine, she claimed she suffered from a disability where she was deaf (thus eliminating communication other than email).

    I recently received the following email from “Griffin Dilwyn”:

    “Counselor at law,
    We Request your firm’s legal advice and guidance concerning a legal matter, for our company against our client in your jurisdiction, for acting contrary to our

    agreement on a loan dispute, kindly confirm what you need, if you wish to take up our case.

    Griffin E. Dilwyn”

    I have no doubt that its a scam. For those who don’t know the scam is that before you get heavily involved in the case your “client” will tell you that the other side got very scared because a lawyer is involved and that they are settling. They will tell you to expect a big settlement check and that you can take your attorneys’ fees out of that check. The thing is that the check, no matter how good it looks or whether it is a certified or bank check, is a fake. Their hope is that you will cut them a check before you or your bank finds out that the settlement check is a fake. The greedy or hasty attorney will then find themselves on the hook to their bank for whatever money they sent to their fake client.

    I went through this many months ago, but I never cut them check, despite their pleas and demands that I do so, since the settlement check had not cleared. Believe me when I tell you that the settlement check looked valid and it took my bank almost a week to catch the fact that it was a fake. I alerted the FBI about this scam, but as you might guess the FBI has not responded to my complaint.

    Randy thanks for making this resource available to attorneys.

      Thanks for HEADS UP. We received an email from “Griffin E. Dilwyn” as well, but this time his email read:

      How are you today? We would like to Thank you for your response to our inquiry for legal services.However,We wish to inform you that we would be needing your firms legal help to assist us with a breach of loan issues and also retrieve funds owed to our company.

      The Borrower (Gentiva Health Services, Inc.) is a company we have known for 4 years and have made several supplies to in the past, without any issues. They requested a loan from our company on March 4 2011 for their office facilities in your jurisdiction, the loan given was an unsecured loan due to the past relationship we have had on business dealings. the amount loaned was $875,985.49, they have paid only $459,930.00 ( which includes 6 months interest rate) out of the total sum given and the balance is still outstanding till date we are in contact with the Principal Financial and Accounting Officer who is also the Executive Vice President of Gentiva Health Services Mr. Eric R. Slusser in the United State. Promises made for our outstanding balance has not been kept and We have made several previous attempts to collect these funds which all ended negatively., we believe bringing law suit to their doorstep will serve as a catalyst to make them remit our funds if need be, We look forward to your prompt response to our email, as the said funds owed to us has caused a strain on our company’s operational capital.

      See Gentiva Health Services, Inc. address for your conflict check: 624 Grassmere Park Drive Suite 8 Nashville, TN 37211-3671

      In this email you will find attached all documents backing our loan for your perusal.We are prepared to pay a reasonable retainer fee for this service as soon as our board gets to review the terms of your engagement letter.So please have that sent to my attention via email, a written retainer agreement is the best way to ensure that our rights are protected, note We expect this to be a pre-litigation case, but we are prepared for a formal lawsuit to be filed. If Gentiva Health Services, Inc. fails to comply, Below are a few question we would like to know before we retain your firm.

      •How many years of experience do you have in this specialty and how have you handled similar disputes in the past?, •Who will be working on our case?, •What type of fee arrangement is required by you? Are the fees negotiable?, •What other expenses will there be besides your fee and how are they calculated?, •How long will it take before our case is resolved?, •How will you keep us updated on the progress of our case?, •Have you represented any special-interest groups, such as nursing homes or senior citizen groups?, •What will our tasks and responsibilities are?

      • Seriously! Our legal dept was ready to sign an agreement with them. We sent him this;

        Griffin,

        As you are aware, our company is also a Private Investigation Firm. As such, our S.I.U. does a background check on all potential clients and your organization has been listed on the watch list as a potential scam. I am sure that it is a mistake, but as a result, our office has placed this client agreement on hold until all documentation of the debt has been received by you and can be verified by our legal department as a valid debt. Please forward all documentation verifying the debt as well as your company’s information and your position within the company to authorize the Power of Attorney.

        We will forward the client agreement after the information has been verified by our staff. Also, the one contingency that is not negotiable is that any and all payments from the debtor are to be sent directly to our company and then the remainder (minus our contingency fee) is sent to you after verification of the payment has been cleared through our bank.

    This scam of Elena Kinoshita’s is the second one I have received this year. Where does this money come from? I don’t even understand how these scams work. I am so glad I googled her.

  9. I received e-mails from “Valerie Yasushi” and “Elana Kinoshita” within 20 minutes of each other. Both with almost the same message asking if my firm handles divorce matters. I recognized the scam right away … gmail basically recognized it too since it bundled the two messages into one. Be careful everyone!

    Received this email today

    Thank you for your prompt response. Currently am living in South Korea for an assignment and Greensberg Kinoshita (ex-spouse) lives in Boston, MA. Due to the time difference (+13hrs EST), it is a little bit difficult to determine the best time to call you. Following my previous mail, my ex-spouse and I agreed under a Collaborative Law Agreement which incorporated by reference was approved, merged into and made part of the court decree for a cash settlement of $698,000.00USD, to his credit, he has paid me $260,500.00USD but still owing $437.500.00USD and the stipulated time for completion of payment has long elapsed. Thus, I need your counsel in order to collect the balance owed to me whichever legal means deem fit.He is aware of my intention to seek legal actions. Attached is a copy of the Collaborative Law Agreement, Entitlement Settlement Agreement and the Court’s Decree (i.e. Divorce Decree) and I will be pleased to provide further information on this case on request. I have already advised him I am planning on retaining your firm. Kindly send me your firm’s retainer fee agreement so that we can proceed. Thank you and I await your prompt reply.

        The mention of collaborative law agreements from previously unknown individuals with broken English screams SCAM!

    Elena Kinoshita/Valerie Yasushi: same pattern as referenced above, but they will go so far as to Xpress mail out a phony Chase Bank cashier’s check- amount $294,100.00 along with a confidentail memo from Greensberg Kinoshita authorizing payment to his ex-wife- less fees of course. You can report to the F.B.I. at http://www.ic3.gov (internet fraud).

    I am an attorney in Minneapolis and received one of the infamous “Elena Kinoshita” emails inquiring about my services in a divorce case. I occasionally receive emails like this from the inquiry link on our website. I have no idea how the actual scam works, but assume it involves a bad check passed through an attorney trust account, with payment made to the “client” before the check has cleared.

    • Lindsey O'Connor says:

      We also got the Elena Kinoshita e-mail here in Alabama. The scammers are really unimaginative – it’s essentially the same scam that hits our e-mail about once a month.

  22. Lindsey O'Connor says:

    By the way, for those who are new to these scams, not only do they sometimes send the fake checks (asking you to deposit the check from the purported ex-husband and then take your own fees out of it, sending the rest to them by your OWN firm check) but they’ll also sometimes ask for your bank account number to supposedly wire the funds into your account. We’ve not been taken yet; however with the heavy number of scammers out there (getting more sophisticated all the time) we no longer accept wire transfers of any kind from anyone since we don’t intend to risk giving our our bank account info to any scammer.

    But these guys can sometimes be fun – on a number of occasions I’ve strung them along just for the heck of it, making them send e-mail after e-mail after e-mail, and sometimes even a check (thereby forcing them to spend money on FedEx or whatever fees – since they don’t dare send it through the U.S. mails), on the theory that they really should have to work hard for the money they’re trying to steal from my boss….

    I just got the prettiest and most official-looking Cashier’s Check from Ms. Kinoshita’s ex-husband in the amount of $297,500.00, purportedly drawn on Chase Bank (to be forwarded by us to the bank’s fraud department, of course, along with the e-mail correspondence). At least the scammers had to pay the overnight mail fees to send it to us and go to all the trouble of forging the check…….

  26. Since I advertise on the internet that I am a family law attorney, I get about a dozen or so of these Elena Kinoshita type emails per year. The first time it happened, it was from a Diana in S. Korea on work assignemnt wanting to enforce her final decree against her ex-husband who was “located in your jurisdiction”. It sounded “off” to me, so I asked to set-up a telephone consultation (which is standard practice, anyway). In response, I received excuses about time differentials and 3 pdf attachments (purported final decree, etc.). None of the documents were issued from a Virginia court and, by this point, I had googled the “client” name. I did waste a few hours of my time on this entire bit of nonsense, however.

    The lesson that I’ve learned is this: when an email to begins with “Dear Counsel”, just hit the delete button and go on with your day!

    Just got a new one. From “Shawn Atkins” of Protective Textile Co. Limited in Surrey, U.K. To collect a debt of $350,000.00. They are pretty good sometimes – there really is a Protective Textile Co. in Surrey and the company “Shawn” says owes them the money also is real (Thompson & Johnson Equipment Co. in East Syracuse, NY). But everything else has the hallmarks of the scam.

    I also got the scam email with the “Japanese” documents in English. I know there is a lot of romaji in Japan these days but a court in Sapporo issuing decrees in English? Odd thing is a few days ago I got a phone call from a very annoying person with what sounded like a Russian accent asking me, in a very insistent manner, what I thought about a “colloborative” approach to marital dissolution.

  33. Brett levy says:

    I am an attorney in Boston and I just received the same “scam” email yesterday. They are very quick in responding and sending documents for review. It would be interesting to find a way to have them actually send money, even if it’s nominal, in order to retain a lawyer. Other than that thought, the documents being prepared (not translated) in English does not make sense to me and the willingness to hire a firm sight unseen made my alarms go off.

    Appears that the scam is to put a settlement check into trust account then pay it to a third party before it clears. If anyone has that fact pattern tell them to come into your office or contact local counsel.

    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/enforce payment from my ex-husband or litigate this matter if he fails to pay as promised.
    Kindly Reply.

    Yours truly,

    Mrs.Jaclyn Kaidence”

    Another one here.
    Got a similar thing with new names. I’m going the 419 eater route.
    Let us see if I can get my “expenses” covered 🙂

    Then I’ll see about cashing that “check”. Cough.

    I get about 3 forms of this email just about every week. It usually starts with “Dear Counsel”, and it purports to require my assistance for some sort of large debt enforcement matter in “your jurisdiction”. My Jurisdiction? What a coincidence! I just happen to practice in My Jurisdiction as well!

    I did not need this site to tell me that it was a scam, but it is interesting to see that so many other attorneys get this as well. It is interesting that they use a fake check, but it makes sense.
