Fraud Alert

We are aware that there are individuals and organizations who are actively attempting to use the name of legitimate law firms in order to commit fraud.  It has come to our attention that attempts have been made to also use our Cassels Brock name and brand for these illegal purposes.

The schemes look like legitimate legal matters and are targeting small law firms, escrow agents and real estate agents across Canada and the United States.  They are intended to cause law firms and other agents to disburse funds on a bad or fake cheque, bank draft or US cashier’s cheque.  The most common schemes we are aware of include real estate transactions or collection matters where they need an agent to accept delinquent funds from a company.  These individuals will return phone calls and are prepared to sign retainer agreements.  However, at some point, the scheme will require the law firm or other agent to issue funds to them.

Cassels Brock is working with the authorities in both Canada and the United States.

If you suspect you have had fraudulent dealings with any of the individuals listed below using the Cassels Brock name or brand, particularly involving cheques or facsimiles of such instruments, please contact us: fraudalert@casselsbrock.com.
