“Cromwell & Goodwin”

by Walter Olson on June 18, 2011

Scam investigators are starting to assess the harm done by a pretend “law firm,” including $6,775 in losses to a victimized British man. Fortunate that it was just fake; imagine how much more damage the law firm might have done had it been real! [AmLaw Daily]

I thought there was a 50/50 chance that the Cromwell & Goodwin deal was genuine, and I decided to see where it led. Unfortunately it didn’t work out.

And based on that you gave them $6,775. As P.T. Barnum said, there’s one born every minute.
