Zendegui Law scam

Careful with scams everyone. Just got one from “Zendegui Law Group”
I noticed a red flag with the email it came from. I found them on google after a quick search. Called them and asked for Susan. She did not exist at this law firm lol.

Hotmail isn’t indicative anything. I worked for an attorney that had a hotmail account. Also one with gmail.

I was referring to the MEME portion of the email. Another red flag is the missing contact number. Also this email was not professionally written…

That’s fair. I know a successful large service business in my area that uses both gmail and their company email. They have a website and everything but use Gmail too. So it’s not a take at that but I have never came across a law firm doing this. I’ve worked as a paralegal for years for many law firms and never came across a law firm using a gmail or hotmail. There’s a level of professionalism expectations for law firms which includes how their email is.

(CA) Whatever on this Gmail thing. Forewarned is forearmed, right? If you smell a rat, there’s one or more around. Too many scammers out there to take chances. Take a look at the “ImpressiveLawyers” thread from a week or so ago that I was in to see what I mean.

I received the same email, responded with my rate, and received a confirmation back. They doubled the rate I requested, and send me a packet of documents. When I clicked on it my computer flashed a red warning screen and I quickly exited. I’ve then sent another Email saying there is a problem with the documents and please call me. Crickets! Thankful for my computer my computer keeping me safe.

You might want to check Signing Central on Notary Rotary. I delay taking an order from a new client before checking them out, especially if I have never heard of them. Back in 2008-10 most of the Loan Mod scams were coming from law firms.

These type of “fishing” emails come through every now & then. The best practice is to delete them instead of sending a reply asking for more info, which they should have given you in the original email. If you did respond & are sent docs, DON’t TRY TO OPEN THEM!!! In the past, notaries have responded & received docs which they couldn’t open. It’s not known for sure, but you could be downloading a virus or malware.

Thank you for sharing this on the Forum. Some client!? In your County!? Refinance or purchase@? Poorly written, vague, Scam all over!

Great advise. Thank you.

I recieved the same email and contacted the law firm as well. I recieved another one today in the exact same format but different law firm’s name. I just deleted it due to the poor grammar.

Definitely a scam. I worked for a law firm 30 years and we always had our own notary. Most firms use their very own firm name on their email unless they’re sole practitioners. I got same email yesterday too and found it suspicious.

Same thing here! Glad the attachment didn’t open.

Got the same email 100 % scam
