Description of Potential Fraud:


After a somewhat quiet December (127 emails and 12 new fraud alert posts), the pace increased in January. We received 187 emails from lawyers and posted on 18 new fraud attempts.

58% of the emails this month came from the U.S., 34% from Ontario, 8% from elsewhere in Canada and 8% from overseas.

16 of the 18 fraud alerts were commercial debt/purchase scams. Click here to read about the various email fraud scenarios.

We’ve come up with a new way to visually convey the scope of the fraud attempts against lawyers based on information forwarded to us from around the world. Click on each image to enlarge them.
