Law Fraud – Law Scam

There are a lot of different law scams that are being perpetrated all the time and new ones being created every day. The problem is that a lot of us don’t even know that we are being scammed until it is too late, and some of us never know that we have been scammed at all. Law scams are those that break the law to take place. We live in an age of technology and what this means is that there is much more sophisticated law fraud occurring than ever before.

Common Law Fraud

Because we live in a very technical world many of the scams that are being perpetrated are of this nature. Some of the most common scams today include but are not limited to:

Internet auction frauds

∙ Internet service scams

Web cramming

Credit card cramming

Pyramid scams

∙ Multi-level marketing

Work at home scams

Investment scams

Travel fraud

Telephone fraud

∙ Healthcare frauds

∙ Legal advice scams

As you can see, today most of the law scams are not done in a face to face fashion. In fact, if you are scammed chances are the people that are scamming you are not located in your area and they are probably not even in the same country as you. Scammers have found that the internet is a great way to get what they want from you and run, because it is much more difficult to be caught online than it is if you are dealing with someone face to face. It is difficult to stop someone online, but not impossible, so don’t give up trying just because you aren’t sure that you can track someone down. It is possible.

With most law scams the scammer says that he has a service or product that the consumer needs. The consumer will share information or provide money to the scammer, which they will take and use as they wish, never delivering on their promise of the needed product or service. Many people know that they have been scammed but they assume that they simply have to deal with it. Luckily, more and more internet fraud laws are being passed so that internet law scams are not something that we just have to grin and bear. Today many of these scams are prosecutable offenses, allowing for the consumer to file a complaint about the scammer and hopefully stop them in their tracks.

If you feel as though you have been the victim of one or more law scams the first thing you need to do is gather all of the evidence that you can of the scam including any promises of products or goods. Keep all of this information and then file a police report. After you do this, it would be advisable to hire a lawyer. Many lawyers are willing to work on cases that include law scams for nothing, taking a percentage of the proceeds of your suit when you win, allowing you to fight the scammer without putting any more money into the whole ordeal. You don’t have to be scammed and sit in silence, instead you can fight back. There are many different scams out there today, which means that you have to do your due diligence as a consumer and really look into the background of the people or companies that you deal with. Ask for background information, licenses, certifications, etc. This will allow you to get a good glimpse into the company and the people behind it, hopefully limiting your potential of being scammed.

    How about being scammed out of your land? The owner financed land I was buying had a warranty deed in my name. The guy financing it to me convinced me that I would be saving him 50-60K in income taxes if I would agree to release the note back to him in exchange for an agreement he wrote up. He lowered my payment to 1/3 of what I was paying and said I could refinance, sell it, and stay there living as I was as long as I wanted to. I went to an attorney’s office to sign the agreement. I signed the In Lieu of foreclosure and left with the promise that this attorney was drawing up the agreement and it would be ready in 10 days or 2 weeks. I never got the agreement from the attorney, but I left with the original hand written agreement and acted upon it for 6 months before he had the same atty sent me an eviction notice to vacate. Is this intent to commit fraud?

    I am here to add my complaint to another previous complaint against Marion Browning-Baker who runs a law practice out of her house in Stuttgart, Germany.

    I used this lawyer in 2001. She charged me $26,300 and never got me divorced. All she did was write emails back and forth with some stateside lawyer which I was not allowed to talk to because she made me sign a statement that I would not do that. Then I FIRED HER because I could see her only goal was to steal my money. The lady is a total CROOK! I can’t believe she is still doing this to people like is written above. Somebody should do something about this. She is a criminal and should be in jail.
