Anatomy of a Scam

September 6, 2022

Meet “Carl” (not his actual name) – a bankrupt who is currently recovering from a romance scam that cost him over $500,000.00, including his retirement savings and vehicle. Listen to a Trustee walk through his story and learn how and why romance scams work. Consider the potential impact of these frauds on the insolvency system. Think you can identify which personalities are most likely to be scammed? Learn how research has discovered that victims are anything but ‘typical’. You will take away valuable information applicable to your practice – how to discuss your suspicions if you think a client is being scammed, what your client should do about the scam and what steps they can take to recover financially and emotionally. Finally - you get to decide – should Carl get his automatic discharge from bankruptcy, or should the Trustee oppose – where a debtor has made financial decisions with his heart, not his head.
