Scam misappropriates Florida lawyer’s name

first_img Scam misappropriates Florida lawyer’s name November 1, 2011 Regular News Scam misappropriates Florida lawyer’s namecenter_img Bradd L. Weinberg, a criminal defense lawyer in West Palm Beach, was surprised when the voice on the other end of the phone asked if his firm was facilitating the awarding of a sweepstakes’ prize.He wasn’t. Turns out someone running a scam was using his firm’s name to perpetuate their nefarious scheme.Weinberg said he received a call October 17 from a man in Texas who said he received a phone call alerting him that he had won a sweepstakes and that the prize would be disbursed by an attorney’s office that would soon make contact with him. The offices of Bradd L. Weinberg, P.A., to be exact.“I told him I did not know anything about it,” said Weinberg, disappointed that his name was being used in the scam and concerned that somehow he might be accused of participating in the ruse.Weinberg called his local state attorney’s office, the Florida Attorney General’s Office, and the Bar to report the matter.“My worry is. . . some people will not be smart enough to verify it, and they will fork over money.. . . ”Typically, in such a scam, “the mark” would be asked to provide the con artist with a processing fee or service charges to collect the award or divulge bank account or other sensitive personal information.Weinberg said the Texan became wary when he called the phone number that came up on his caller ID during the initial call. He didn’t get an answer. So he looked Weinberg up and found his real office number.“The scam did not get very far with him, because he basically called to check up and got in touch with me,” Weinberg said. “I told him I did not know anything about it and not to deal with those people.”The News dialed the number that came up on the Texas man’s phone. The call was answered by an unprofessional-sounding voice message stating, “The number you have dialed is unallocated.”Weinberg is pained that lawyers’ good names could be sullied by this type of scam, through no fault of their own.“It’s not good.”last_img read more

Global Liner Reliability Drops

first_imgA global decline in performance of shipping lines has been recorded in July for the first time since February, according to SeaIntel’s latest Global Liner Performance report.The drop amounts to almost four percentage points from 75.6% in June to 71.6%, the report shows.Shipping giants Maersk Line, Hamburg Süd and Hanjin are still the most reliable liners, whereas Hyundai Merchant Marine, MOL, NYK were found at the other end of the list of the world’s top 20 shipping lines.Three major trade lines were hit the hardest, based on SeaIntel’s report, those being the transpacific eastbound, Asia-Mediterranean and Asia-north Europe routes.Congestion issues in Rotterdam and Hamburg are believed to be the biggest contributors to liner reliability downturn between Asia and Europe, which fell for 20 percentage points.The drop was further fueled by longshore contract talks in the US along with port workers strike in Chile, as explained by SeaIntel COO Alan Murphy.According to SeaIntel’s midyear review during the second quarter, the overall industry reliability was improving. However, there was a widening gap between industry players.Maersk Line scored an above-industry rating of 86.1%, which was facilitated by fair weather and fewer port closures for the quarter.As the leading liner for Q2, Maersk Line drove the industry gap to 11%, overtaking Hamburg Süd and CSAV with 84.1% and 79.6%, respectively, the review shows.[mappress]World Maritime News Staff, September 02, 2014; Image: HHM / Dietmar Hasenpuschlast_img read more

We’ll cope, says Salford claims centre chief

first_imgManagers at the new county court money claims centre in Salford are confident that it will be able to cope with going fully operational on Monday (19 March) despite a barrage of complaints about its service so far. Manager Jason Latham told the Gazette that the volume of incoming paperwork will rise by 25-30%, but the centre will continue to issue claims within one day of receipt. He said deputy district judges will be working on site every day from 23 March, ensuring a quick turnaround for interlocutory applications and giving advice to the centre’s 205 staff. Latham, who also manages HM Courts & Tribunals Service business centres in Northampton, Loughborough and Leicester, told the Gazette that he and his staff are determined to ‘iron-out’ problems. He said: ‘The complaints represent a tiny fraction of the total volume of work being done.’ Latham pointed to ‘small, but significant’ refinements, such as the ‘Solicitor Service’ rubber stamp that the centre has sent to law firms, so that claims to be issued by solicitors can be identified easily. Having judges on site every day will be a ‘huge step forward’, he said. ‘They will provide a valuable reference point to give clear, consistent and unequivocal direction to staff. They also demonstrate the judiciary’s keenness to work with us to deliver the service,’ he said. The ‘next incremental step forward’ is to be payment by account, which Latham described as ‘virtually a direct debit facility’ to speed up the present practice of enclosing cheques with claim forms. The Salford centre currently receives 1,300-1,500 claims a day. Staff are trained to deal with every stage of the process, from sifting the post to processing claims to customer service enquiries. Some staff have transferred from county courts, others from elsewhere in the civil service while others were recruited locally. The number of claims is expected to increase by more than 25% as county courts in south-west and north-east England and Wales begin sending claim forms to the centre when it goes fully operational. A dedicated Wales unit is in place, with two Welsh speakers in the team and access to translators in north Wales, so that documents can be issued in Welsh and English.last_img read more

New trailer moves old truck

first_imgWeighing 12 tonnes and measuring 2.55 m x 9.3 m x 3.16 m, the old truck with its extendible ladder was delivered from Stuttgart, Germany to Enschede in the Netherlands.The new low loader, which was engineered with help from VSE and Recker, was developed primarily to transport combine harvesters.The trailer’s rear electrical steering means that no steering beams are required, reducing the weight of the trailer. Furthermore, since no turntable is needed, the height of the gooseneck is also reduced.The turning radius is fully programmable depending on the length of the trailer, and it is driveable at any height, without additional tyre wear, said ZTT.  www.ztt.nlwww.vandervlist.comlast_img read more
