Fraud Alert — Beware of “Barrister Richard Burt” (it’s not me)

I was contacted by someone who had been asked to pay $5,000 for legal services. The person asking for the money was supposedly Barrister Richard Burt. This impostor showed my office address (right down to the suite number) as his purported address on his email to the intended victim of his fraud. And he provided the intended victim with a copy of a fake I.D. card with my name. The I.D. card had no indication of who supposedly issued it, but it did have my photo (filched from my website)!

So beware. If you have a doubt whether you are dealing with the real Richard Burt, a lawyer in San Jose, call me at my office (408) 286-7333.
