Finkelstein & Partners was first notified of a mail/wire fraud scheme associated with he firm in 2014. Letters circulating in the U.S. and abroad were/are sent from a fictitious company: Finkelstein & Partner: International Trust Company. The letters claim the recipient has won or inherited money, and in order to receive that money must provide wire a payment.
Upon news of the fraudulent letters we notified the attorney general. Unfortunately mail fraud is a crime dating back well over a hundred years and catching and prosecuting
guilty parties can be extremely difficult.
Mail and wire fraud often target vulnerable recipients, like the elderly or mentally impaired. If you or a loved one has been a victim or mail or wire fraud alert the appropriate law enforcement agency, you can find a complete list here.
