Attorney Warns Of Scam Targeting Former Conn Clients
LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) - The attorney for former clients of Eric Conn is warning about a scam targeting those former clients.
Ned Pillersdorf posted on his Facebook page about the issue. He says someone is calling former Conn clients and telling them that because they were victimized by Conn, they are entitled to a special 'Eric Conn compensation fund' of $9000.
Pillersdorf says the victims believe the call is legitimate because the identity of Conn's former clients has not been made public.
The scammers then request that the victims send them $200 to process the compensation package. They also will call back and demand more money, threaten to sue or contact the IRS.
Pillersdorf tells LEX 18 at least two people have lost money, and several more have been contacted by this scam.
He says this fraud is being executed by skilled con men. He's warning any former Conn clients to contact police if you get this call.
