Identity Theft

This is a blog post I didn’t expect to write. I got a call the other day from a woman who said she had something important to discuss with me. I called her back, assuming she was a potential client. Not exactly. She told me a story about a man she met and dated for a while. He wined and dined her extravagantly. He claimed to be a successful lawyer with a Columbia law degree. As proof, he showed her his website. Although things started off well, he started going psycho and stalking her, and she had to call the police. I guess it’s not that surprising.

So, what does this have to do with me? Well, the lawyer with a Columbia degree that he claimed to be was ME! And the website he showed her was MINE!

The moral of this story is if someone claims to be me, call me to confirm it. And don’t trust anybody. And I should think about putting a picture on my website.
