Beware of scammers bearing bouncy cheques

Just a quick post to draw the attention of fellow family lawyers to an article by David Hodson on Family Law warning of scam emails requesting help in enforcing a foreign collaborative law agreement. I received one of these emails myself yesterday (it was immediately marked as spam). The scam is the usual one: the scammer sends a cheque on account of fees, then immediately requests a refund. The refund is paid, and then the cheque bounces.

As David says: "Beware, be wise, be willing to share scamming experiences and be sceptical of easy money!"
