Financial Scams and Cons

Financially motivated scams and cons are some of the most common forms of criminal fraud and can be devastating for the victims. Financial scammers often prey on the elderly and the disabled, adding another element of villainy to the crime.

What is a scam?

A scam is any scheme wherein one person willfully misrepresents a product or service to another in exchange for monetary reward. Occasionally, scams may take the form of threats. A common form of this is the so-called “IRS telephone” scam wherein an individual makes a phone call to another claiming to be a representative of the IRS. The scammer will then claim that the victim owes the agency back taxes and will threaten the victim with jail time if they do not pay immediately. It is important to note that the IRS will never call you when it regards your tax situation. All of their communications will be in the form of official mailings.

What should I do if I am the victim of a scam?

If you are the victim of a scam, it is important to note all of the details of what happened to the most accurate degree that you can remember. You must then contact the police and an attorney in order to get justice. You do not have to be a victim without any avenue for restitution.

Mr. Hoffman was able to get my offenses reduces to a lesser degree. His fees are one of the lowest that I could find for the type of representation that I required. If I ever need to be represented by an attorney I would surely use Mr. Hoffman again. C. Wright
