In the bad cheque scam, fraudsters want to steal funds out of a lawyer’s trust account. Instead of robbing a bank, they use different tricks to try and dupe a lawyer into depositing a fake certified cheque into trust and then pay good funds out of trust, leaving the lawyer’s trust account short, overdrawn, or both. In this elearning course, learn about the different ruses scamsters use, steps you can take to protect yourself, and the coverage available under the compulsory insurance policy if you do get caught. This program is based on a CLE-TV course originally broadcast on June 12, 2012.
