A scam is be perpetrated using the name “Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey”.

Individuals around the US are being contacted by someone purporting to be from our firm advising them they have won $175k in a “sweepstakes” run by “American Shopper’s Network”. A fake copy of a Bank of America check is sent to the individual, who is provided with the telephone number 954-678-0081 to call and collect. When that number is called, it is answered “Lawlor Winston White & Murphey” and the victim is instructed to make purchase a “green dot” debit card to make a payment ranging from $400.00 to $895.00 to cover “insurance & processing” of their sweepstakes winnings. They are supplied with a bogus BOA telephone number (202-595-2117) to call and confirm as well.
