I’ve received two different calls from a person under the name “”Rick Dingman”” asking our law firm to handle some legal transactions for him. He claims he is referred by a former client. The first transaction was purportedly to help him with the sale of a $400 million ruby collection. The second was to help him with buying and selling $300 million of Mexican historical bonds. I was, of course, suspicious of these unusual transactions. On both occasions I asked him for a retainer for our services. He refused and instead proposed to transfer $1 million to our trust account. He claimed we could keep $100,000 and then transfer the rest to him. Obviously we refused to represent him. I believe this is a scam targeted at law firms. I believe that the funds transferred to the firm appear legitimate but are not good funds. After the law firm transfers the funds to him, they are left holding the empty bag. Beware of this person and his legitimate-sounding company, Global Development Solutions. The company is registered in Florida and has a somewhat legitimate-looking website. It’s a scam. Turn and run.
