Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves

Scam Alert – Legal Scam $2.6 Million

scam

     This post is not about a CrimeDiva.  I thought it was important, since it is a white-collar crime, to include for information purposes. In the event you have a loved one, or friend incarcerated, or for knowledge purpose there are individuals that prey upon others misfortune, especially the incarcerated. Just days ago, a federal judge sentenced, John Wilson, 56, of Michigan, to prison for 20 years for scamming incarcerated families and friends out of $2.6 million dollars under the pretense that his companies ‘could’ get the prisoner’s sentence overturned or reduced. Mr. Wilson was not an attorney, and even if he was there are ‘no guarantees’ anyone can get your sentenced overturned or reduced, especially, for inmates that plead guilty. To read more about this case click here.

1. No one can guarantee you that a conviction can/ will be overturned, or reduced.
2. When ever you hire anyone check to make sure they are, especially a licensed attorney. To verify, all you need to do is contact the State Bar Association in the state the attorney practice law.  These are also tips from the FBI site on crime prevention tips:

What You Can Do

  • Don’t believe everything you are told. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Avoid being taken by high pressure sales. Take the time to research offers before deciding whether or not to participate.
  • Don’t do business with anyone who solicits your money in advance of awarding a prize.
  • Inspect all representatives’ credentials carefully.
  • Get all offers in writing and keep a copy for your records.
  • Don’t deposit checks sent by companies that claim the check is being sent to pay fees or taxes on lottery winnings.

Report Scams When They Occur

  • Don’t ever be embarrassed. These frauds are perpetrated by sophisticated con artists.
  • File a claim with the appropriate entities listed in this brochure.
  • Report the crime promptly—you’ll have a better chance of getting your money back and bringing the perpetrators to justice when you file a complaint soon after the crime.
