scam alert LawPro reports that the number of frauds perpetrated on attorneys by bogus emails continues to rise and over half of the recently reported frauds were reported by attorneys in the United States.  If you receive an electronic request for legal services that appears questionable, check LawPro’s database to see if the request is from a confirmed fraudster before offering legal representation.

No the emails are not coming from Nigeria.  61% of the complaints came from the U.S., 31% from Ontario, 3% from elsewhere in Canada and 5% from overseas.
