I received a letter marked "Legal Affidavit" advising me that I had been awarded $132,000.00 in a class action law suit. A check was enclosed in the amount of $1,975, and I was told to call the firm immediately on receipt, but to not discuss with anyone regarding the settlement not to make any inquiries to third parties as the firm was "entrusted" to make sure beneficiaries received their equal share of the monies.
On receipt I called the Michigan State Bar to see if Mr. White was a licensed attorney. He is not and the state bar has no record of the law firm. Also, there is no record of Mr. White as a practicing attorney in Ontario, and no listing for the law firm. There is a record of him holding himself out to be an attorney which is erroneous. A check of the street address in Detroit shows there is an Adelaide Street, however, it is only 2 blocks long and has low three digit numbers, not going as high as 1306. A check ot the street in London, Ontario revealed no information.
After checking into the above I contacted the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center, and also the USPS Postal Inspectors and filed notices with them as the letter and the check arrived in the US mail.
I called Mr. White and had several lengthy conversations with him. He wanted me to cash the check and pay a courier some "money for hand delivering the funds" to me. He said the courts would not allow the funds to be sent in the mail, which I find unusual having worked with the court system.
The only thing I lost in dealing with Mr. White is some of my time, but he needs to be stopped.
