Any Florida seniors, their caretakers, or other residents of the state who believe they were victims of fraud, or financial or investment schemes, who may have been turned away by state law enforcement or regulators, are encouraged to contact the Lerman Law Firm immediately.   

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Lerman Law Firm (Cathy Jackson Lerman, PA) today issued a nationwide alert to all current and former Florida residents, particularly senior citizens and elders, who may have been victims of Ponzi, fraud, financial or investment schemes, and were turned away by Florida law enforcement and regulators.

Launching an investigation into Florida-based organized schemes to defraud and elder financial exploitation, as well as how these cases are treated within the State of Florida, the law firm is urging anyone who may have been a victim or has helpful information to contact their office right away.

Cathy Lerman, Esq. of the Lerman Law Firm stated today: “We are working with numerous victims – residents, non-residents and seniors in Florida – who have been targeted by scammers and lost their life savings in fraudulent self-directed IRA scams, OTC penny stock schemes, and fraudulent investments. Sadly, many of these victims have also had their cases turned away by Florida law enforcement or the attorney general’s office. But we will not stop in our fight for justice.”

Lerman added: “This seeming systematic failure to investigate and prosecute fraudsters who financially exploit Florida residents, particularly the elderly, is unacceptable. Our law firm is investigating why serious felonies like exploiting senior citizens, running organized schemes to defraud, selling fake investments, and laundering money are given so little attention. If you have any information or are a victim, please contact us today to share your story.”
