Another question for drug trafficking
in South Korea. My brother was arrested coming into the country, however he was the product of being induced to carry without his knowledge.(7-8 kilos wrapped as gifts) He thought he was going there to finalize papers to receive a large inheritance (internet scam) , I'm looking for an agency to help catch these guys, already working with the Embassy, trying to raise funds, find an attorney I can understand and trying to get some sleep because of the time change. This is the first I've heard of a scam that induced someone to become a mule.
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?
Customer: He was arrested at the airport in Seoul on 9/3, I was called by the Embassy on 9/7. I doubt you can help me much, but this seems to be a new twist. My brother lives in Oregon and I was hoping there was an agency that works n these things. I can't find anything on the net and imagine the law has a lot to do with this.
JA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?
Customer: Yes, I've written 25 firms in Seoul, couple of replies last night. This is quite the expensive proposition. From all I've read, you do not want to go the pro bono route,as statistically they obtain longer sentences
for their clients. My brother is a senior citizen, no record, and addled in the head, or at least suffering from some kind of addition to pies in the sky.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: You mean there is something there to my rantings?
