    wow…where did that lawyer get his education? Must have been ivy league to so blindly believe that other lawyers (or people in general)are so honest that you'd send off big bucks w/out even the smallest amount of research….like, duh, Is the check any good?

      Hi Snowman, you raise an interesting point–not about the lawyer's naivete, gullability, blind faith–or, stupidity–but about ivy league schools and the perception of them being an enclave-ish environment where one is shielded from the harsh realities of human nature that exist just outside campus limits. I'd agree, except for the recent news about the research going on at Columbia–in which psychiatric patients who were part of a study there were being injected with drugs that contained potentially dangerous impurities; note, this was not apparently a one-time issue–FDA violations occurred repeatedly over a 4-year period (per the NY Times)–along w/a report of a forged document that had allegedly been altered to hide a drug impurity; so, it begs the question of whether the ivy league microcosm is really that naive (and honest) or whether they'd just like everyone to think they are… We unfortunately cannot look up the credentials of the lawyer who fell for the scam here, but suffice to say, regardless of where he got his education, he's not feeling too smart right now…
