Frauds & Scams

Doklestic Repic & Gajin z.a.k. (the “Firm”) is aware of certain fraudulent actions and scams that may be attempted by various individuals or organisations online – i.e. through the internet with the intent to unlawfully and fraudulently damage individuals and/or persons under the disguise of a lawyer or law firm.

Typically, there are at least two most usual types of such fraudulent actions: (1) “Inheritance” schemes, and (2) Bill payment frauds.

“Inheritance” schemes

These schemes most often begin with an email informing the target that they may be entitled to a huge inheritance, subject to certain terms. Often this will be alleged estate of a long lost or forgotten relative who went to live abroad or his/her descendants. Swindler’s email will often inform you that you may be entitled to such an inheritance, with their alleged “legal” assistance. However, as a rule, this would require payment of certain “advance fee” or similar to them – in order to enable them to obtain such big non-existent inheritance for the target.

Our Firm is never involved in such matters, and as a rule we do not work on estate and/or inheritance files. Therefore, if you receive such an email under the disguise of our Firm, be aware that most likely this is some sort of a fraudulent scam aimed to damage you.

In such a case, please feel free to contact us in order to verify truthfulness of the communication you have received.

Bill Payment Frauds

In certain fraudulent schemes the swindlers try defraud individuals and/or organizations in a way that they falsely “inform” them under the disguise of a lawyer or law firm of the non-existent change of the billing details for the payment of legal fees. In that way they attempt to streamline the funds to the bank accounts under their control and to further conceal those funds through a series of (usually) non-traceable financial operations.

Our Firm is never involved in such retroactive changes of billing / payments details. All billing and payments details for our services are always clearly stated on our invoices and all payments in that regard should be made in accordance with the instructions from our signed and stamped invoices.

Therefore, if you receive such an email under the disguise of our Firm, be aware that most likely this is some sort of a fraudulent scam aimed to damage you.

In such a case, please feel free to contact us in order to verify truthfulness of the communication you have received.
