    Sirs:

    I am an attorney in the state of Washington. I was contacted via email by a Siwan Park regarding a purported collection matter on behalf of a Renesas Electronics Company. In the spirit of “if it sounds to good to be true it probably is” I decided to check out scams involving this “attorney” and company, and found your website. I don’t practice in Canada (although I did have the privilage of living and working there for a short while).
