Telephone Scam Alert For Bankruptcy Attorneys And Their Clients


The Bankruptcy Court of the Northern District of Illinois released an important message this week regarding a new telephone scam. The new scam, called "Caller ID Spoofing", involves a scammer using an attorney's phone number to call her or his clients asking for additional payments for creditors and directing the client to call a toll-free number to make the payments. Because this scam will list an attorney's legitimate office number on caller ID, it may be difficult or impossible for a client to not be victimized. It is imperative that clients receive information about the scam, understand the payment process for creditors in bankruptcies. It also is necessary for attorneys to notify their clients about the spoofing scam. If you believe you have been victimized by Caller ID Spoofing, you should file a complaint with the FBI at the Internet Crime Complaint Center www.ic3.gov.
