The latest scam version of this scam is quite well done.

- Intro email is basically "We don't have a legal rep in your state, are you taking new clients?"
- Attorney responds "Who is the client, need to do conflict check."
- Scammer sends name of legit company as debtor, asks not to contact until retained because trying to keep client as a customer, just wants to get paid, litigation last resort.
- Attorney sends retainer agreement.
- Scammer says "flying to Korea to get approval from our Board of Directors."
- Scammer sends back signed agreement a few days later, and tells attorney that debtor will pay the total amount due to avoid suit, will pay on last day of the month, don't contact debtor unless misses payment.
- It is at this point that an experienced attorney attempts to authenticate the client, and cannot do so. Up to this point, all the attorney did was send the client/scammer a standard retainer agreement and do a conflict check, no time at all to do those two tasks. But, accepting funds into the firm's trust account is an entirely different story. An inexperienced attorney might accept the funds, and when they "clear" remit to scammer/client less contingency fee...then we all know what happens when the counterfeit check finally bounces 3 weeks to 6 months later. The experienced attorney treats his trust account like the sacred thing that it is, and won't accept funds without authenticating that s/he has contracted with a duly authorized member of the client/scammer company and verifies funds are going to the business' HQ, and not some rogue employee. The inexperienced attorney might not realize that has to be done.

This scam was attempted in Missouri just last month, probably because the newest members of the bar were just sworn on on April 30, and added their contact info on the MO Bar web site.

No such thing as a quick buck. If it seems too good to be true, it is.

Welcome here Missouri Attorney.

Thanks for posting this valuable information. Is it possible to post that first email that was send by the scammer? Preferably with the full headers, with the private details left out of course.

Being a victim doesn't mean you stand alone. We're here to help you.

Another using a real estate twist. I think the realtor is real but the email address isn't. Realtyagent.com is a free email domain and annsabellarealty.com was recently registered for a year from Canada.

I might mention that while most lawyer scams ask that funds be transfered to Asian bank, this is not always the case. Some scammers have evolved and have accomplices that can set up accounts anywhere in the world that can arrange for the funds to quickly vanish, including US and Canadian accounts.

Scammers present you a contract that is too good to be true thats why a lot of people nowadays are fooled. Sometimes you can't even tell which is the real thing. Well to be protected nowadays we have to take extra precaution especially credit cards. Our family have this credit monitoring service which alerts you of any suspicious activity going on or if somebody is looking into your account they give you alerts through email or priority mail. such an excellent service.
