U.S. Law Firms Continue to be the Target of Counterfeit Check Scheme

03/12/12 By the FBI

The IC3 continues to receive reports of counterfeit check schemes targeting U.S. law firms. The scammers contact lawyers via e-mail, claiming to be overseas and requesting legal representation in collecting a debt from third parties located in the U.S. The law firms receive a retainer agreement and a check payable to the law firm. The firms are instructed to deposit the check, take out retainer fees, and wire the remaining funds to banks in China, Korea, Ireland, or Canada. After the funds are wired overseas, the checks are determined to be counterfeit.

Free Energy what where how and why

I think we are all a little fascinated with the free energy concept. And we should be! there is a lot of it out there! Some of the hurtles we face while trying to harness this free energy, greed (larger institutions trying to stop us), extraction, harnessing, green (non pollutant) and last but not least, distribution. Because this is a issue that needs to be solved and put out there, I have started this topic to post my notes and findings of free energy research. Some of the researchers I will be talking about will be:  Nikola Tesla, Victor Schauberger, Lee Rogers, Stan Meyers, Andrija Puharch, Daniel Dingle, Floyd Sweet, Wilhelm Reich, Keely, Chris Hunter, Bob Boyce, Richard Clem, Viktor Grebennikov, Milkovic, Herman Anderson, Thomas Moray, Tom Bearden, Charles Pogue, Bendini, and God, The Creator.

Online Rental Ads Could be Phony

rental housing scam

You can’t believe your good fortune, you find a rental home in a nice area through a Craigslist classified ad at an unbelievably low rate. The landlord, who had to leave the country and travel to Nigeria, asks that you wire him two months’ worth of rent. You arrive at the home on the agreed-upon date, but there’s just one small problem, the house is not actually for rent and its owners know nothing about your agreement.

This latest scam being perpetrated by Nigerian criminals located halfway around the world has been seen in a number of U.S. states, perhaps in response to the current housing market, with fewer people buying, more people are renting.
