LAWYERS BEING SCAMMED?

Everyday, I receive an email or two sent to "undisclosed recipients" requesting legal services, usually from someone abroad. I know that they are scams.

The New York State Bar association has recently published this notice:

"Dear Members, Please be aware that in recent weeks some of our members have received emails indicating that a potential client has been referred to them by NYSBA’s Lawyer Referral Service. Unless, you have joined our referral service you will not receive referrals from our program. These emails have been coming from Japan and other foreign countries.

Questions about the Lawyer Referral Service can be directed to Eva Valentin-Espinal, LRIS Coordinator (evalentin@nysba.org). "
