    WebXtra video: Don't be victim to scammers

    Lawyers regularly receive email messages from prospective “clients” whose goal is to trick the lawyers into transmitting funds to the message senders. In this video, Madison attorney Thomas Watson notes business loans, commercial litigation, family law, and real estate appear to be the areas of law most commonly used by scammers. Watson urges, “Be wary of clients who make contact only by email, and be careful with your online banking system, particularly when it comes to your trust accounts.”
