BEWARE OF “419” SCAMS – Even Smart Attorneys Fall for These Dumb Scams
They’ve been around for a long time but people still get fooled by the prospect of easy money. I had a client who was scammed and charged with fraud. I was able to convince the Crown to withdraw the charge as he was really the victim and was able to show through LawPro statistics that many lawyers have been duped by the same scam. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
At the end of the day, you need to be smart. Not every scammer follows the same Nigerian prince formula. Lawyers are specific targets for scammers. Always do your due diligence to avoid being scammed.
