Fraudulent Use of the John N. Tasolides, Esq. Brand
Like many other reputable law firms, John N. Tasolides, Esq. brand and the names of our attorneys or staff may be used in connection with fraudulent schemes, including fraudulent emails, letters or phone calls. These scams may take many forms and are subject to constant change. In some cases, they may be seeking personal or confidential information, in others they may be requesting advance payment or debt settlement. Recent examples include the following:
Inheritance, or legal services, fraud
Third parties often impersonate lawyers to deceive the public to pay in advance for legal services, often in relation to a possible inheritance. These schemes often involve claims that a ‘a relative’ with the same surname as the recipient has died, and the scammer claims to be an attorney who can help secure the inheritance and requests payment of an advance legal fee. Our office, like other legitimate law firms does not market our services in this manner.
Fraudulent Emails Alert
Scammers often claim to be or act on behalf of attorneys using fraudulent internet domains.
The criminals impersonate the attorneys by using email addresses that incorporate the name of the lawyer or law firm using email addresses provided by Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail or Yahoo. John N. Tasolides, Esq. does not use Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail or Yahoo email addresses. Please check for the use of email addresses associated with fraudulent domains, as described above. Legal communications from John N. Tasolides, Esq. attorneys and staff will only originate from @tasolaw.com.
