WARNING: INTERNET SCAM DIRECTED TO LAWYERS

/ 0 Comments /

I have come to learn that there are various internet scams directed to lawyers.   In sum, the scam goes like this: the lawyer is contacted by a person purporting to represent a manufacturer who asks the lawyer to draft a purchase and sale transaction involving equipment that is to be received in the lawyer’s jurisdiction.  The parties’ identities have been stolen however.   The goal is to have the lawyer receive a fraudulent check purporting to pay for the equipment and then wire funds to the seller before the check is returned as fraudulent.    You can learn more about it here:

Equipment purchase scam using the names Richard Krabbendam and Huisman Equipment

PLEASE BE VIGILANT IF YOU RECEIVE ANY SUCH COMMUNICATION.    THE SCAMMERS USE A LONG LIST OF STOLEN IDENTITIES OF BOTH INDIVIDUALS AND ACTUAL CORPORATIONS.
