Practical Tips and Tools for Identifying, Investigating and Bringing Suit against Financial Scams (Free) (Webinar)

Tuesday September 20

Join us for an engaging session focused on best practices for combatting consumer financial scams, with lessons learned from over six years of targeting mortgage loan modification scams. It will include tips on how to assess whether a consumer has been scammed, with examples of misleading statements that scammers make and tactics they use; how to identify and track scammers; how to locate victims and what information and documents to gather; and how to develop and pursue a successful case to stop the scammers. The session highlights the continuing efforts supported by ABA Resolution 111C to educate lawyers and consumers about deceptive or fraudulent consumer scams, including those involving attorneys. This session will be particularly helpful to paralegals and attorneys in their work to identify, investigate and combat such scams and assist consumers. The session also will introduce the participants to the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law's Guide, a web-based resource launched by the Lawyers' Committee to provide effective strategies for fighting consumer financial scams. The Guide contains 36 links to litigation precedents, including pleadings, motions, memoranda, orders and discovery requests from the Lawyers' Committee's California and New York cases which can serve as models for attorneys who wish to pursue private enforcement efforts against consumer financial scammers and scamming entities.
