Be Aware Of Scam Aimed At Lawyers And Their Clients

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Jan 26, 2016 | 0 Comments

The State Bar of Arizona sent out a warning about a scam that is going around. Scammers are calling people who have retained lawyers. The fake Caller ID shows that it is the lawyer calling.  The scammers tell the clients that they owe money to the lawyer.  The scammers provide a toll-free number for the clients to call and make the bogus payments.  Keep in mind that it is not very hard to find out who has hired a lawyer. A cursory search of public records will often provide

this information. If you have hired one of those firms that advertise all the time on television, be particularly wary. It seems to me this scam is going to work best for law firms that have thousands of clients.  Most of the giant advertising law firms have almost no real contact with their clients. This would further aid the scammers.  If you ever get a call that purports to be from your lawyer asking for money, double or triple check to make sure.  Keep in mind that your lawyer is not likely to ask you to call some 800 number to make a payment.  Call your lawyer directly and let him or her know what has happened. You can also report the attempted fraud with the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center at http://www.ic3.gov.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
