Beware of www.Verilaw.com - The Law Firm Does Not Exist

Beware of www.Verilaw.com - The Law Firm Does Not Exist

Veri Law Intl. LLP located at Verilaw.com, which the owners claim is a law firm with offices in Washington DC, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto, Shanghai, Moscow, does not exist. Therefore, recipients of email messages like the one below from lawyers from the same so-called law firm, especially one that goes by the name Joseph Cohen, should delete them, and should not follow the instructions in them.

Please continue below.

The Veri Law's Website located at www.Verilaw.com

www.Verilaw.com

The owners of the website claim the so-called law firm is based in New York, but The New York Secretary of State's Corporate register shows no such firm as Veri Law doing business in New York State. Verilaw also claims to have an office in Washington DC but that too doesn't check out.

The so-called lawyers attempt to trick their victims by sending them passport as proof and links to LinkedIn and other web pages with credentials. But, a lawyer should have a license number that you can verify through his licensing authority. A passport proves nothing more than citizenship and web pages with credentials can be created by anyone, even online scammers.

The original www.Verilaw.com website

The Verilaw.com domain or website was abandoned and taken up by scammers who re-registered it in late 2016 and is now using it to scam potential victims.

Online users who have already been tricked by the "Veri Law" scammers are asked to report it to the police. Those who have used their credit cards to make payment to the scammers are asked to contact their banks for help.

    Mr Cohen speaks perfect German, assuming he has a German Background. He is claiming to help victims of the Boiler Room Fraud under the fake name of Capitol Trade, in Japan so assumed/connected with these fraudsters/criminals.

    Here is an email message received from the so-called Joseph Cohen:

    "From: Joseph Cohen
    Subject: Verilaw
    Date: 16 May 2017 16:25:50 GMT

    Dear,

    It was a pleasure speaking with you today. As explained, your authorized representative, Mr. Johannesson has not fulfilled his obligations as per signed contract with my firm.

    Therefore your party is in breach of contract and I have instructed my client to return your funds to the same account you have sent it from.

    Needless to say that this is not the desired outcome of the effort we all have spent to get you your already lost investment in excess of almost 200,000 dollars in your case and a little more then that in Mr.Johanesson case, back and all the hours we have spent in order to facilitate this matter are now paid by my client without the contractual agreed result.

    Therefore, my client will seek compensation unless your party is willing to enter into separate agreements in order to avoid the aforementioned.

    Find my contact details below and I will contact you tomorrow to discuss this matter further.

    Sincerely

    Joseph Cohen LLM, MBA

    Dear.

    It has been brought to my attention that you elaborate your dealings with me and my firm on the internet. May I remind you that you have signed a nondisclosure agreement and therefore are in breach of the same.

    Furthermore, your dumbfounded comments are completely irrelevant as we are not taking any money from you and you have been told that from day one.

    However I herewith demand you cease and desist any further public statement on the internet otherwise I will reserve the right to take legal action against you for your defamation of character.

    Furthermore I will seek from you compensation for the hours spent on your behalf, should it come to my attention you have ignored this notification and / or you fail to contact me today by telephone to finalize this matter.

    Sincerely
