Often in property cases this question is the first causality of a bad act. The situations are various: someone misrepresented a fact, a promise to hold funds was not honored, an “ex” kept a piece of personal property after the break up, etc. But not all wrong doings are crimes under the law, and not all criminal cases are resolved.
I recently received an e-mail that was clearly a scam. Recognizing such e-mails is easy when you’re familiar with fraud, but, frankly, most people see through these scams. Lotteries, quick-cash business opportunities, and impounded fortunes—the stories behind these internet flimflams are hard to swallow. But some people do fall victim to these scams.
