Nigerian scammers are going upscale, targeting law firms who accept clients over the internet . The scam is the old "cash the check, deduct your share and send me the balance".
The scam now involves high grade forgeries of insurance policies, claim checks and settlement documents. Law firms are requested to collect the claim check, deduct their fees, and remit the balance.
Losses run in the 6-figure range and reportedly total 70 million. One scammer has been arrested in Canada.
Remember, anyone can be a victim!
