Any seniors, NFL players, or others who believe they may be victims of these investment schemes are encouraged to contact local, state and federal authorities immediately to help bring the perpetrators to justice.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Lerman Law Firm (Cathy Jackson Lerman, PA) today issued a nationwide alert to senior citizens and elders, who are being targeted for Ponzi and investment schemes, and drawn in on the premise that players in the National Football League (NFL) are already investors. These senior victims are approached and enticed by investment fraud promoters to invest through self-directed IRAs, promissory notes, cash or penny stocks. In most cases, the NFL players used to promote the Ponzi schemes are actually victims themselves and have no knowledge that their names are being used to perpetuate fraud on the elderly.

Cathy Lerman, Esq. of the Lerman Law Firm stated today: “Our law firm is working with a wide array of victims, whistleblowers, and state and federal law enforcement to bring the perpetrators of these schemes against the elderly to justice. We are also assisting NFL players who are victims of these fraudulent investment schemes.”

Lerman added: “We encourage any seniors, NFL players, or others who believe they may be victims of these financial exploitation schemes to immediately contact law enforcement.  Victims should also file complaints with the SEC, the attorneys general of their state and their state securities commissions.  This is an ongoing case of affinity fraud being conducted all across the United States, and it must be stopped immediately.”

The Lerman Law Firm is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida but handles a variety of legal matters across the United States including, but not limited to regulatory issues, elder law, consumer protection, ethics and public corruption.  Ms. Lerman may be reached at clerman@lermanfirm.com or 954-332-1143.

Lerman Law Firm Applauds WPTV Consumer Watchdog Jenn Strathman's Warning on Home Improvement Contracts

Cathy Lerman, principal of the Lerman Law Firm, has issued  a press release praising the work of Jenn Strathman, WPTV Consumer Watchdog, for her two part series on home improvement contracts and tips on what the consumer should be watchful for when signing these contracts.  Jenn used as an example, RENUEN (RENU) a solar contractor with many complaints who had contracted with two elderly women that Jenn interviewed.  Neither of the Renuen systems worked as promised, they were not permitted and these elderly women  did not receive the promised rebates-until they appeared on WPTV and then the company CEO, Jeffrey Nemes,  offered to pay part or all of them through RENUEN! Let this be a lesson to the consumer, particularly our senior consumers, DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING WITHOUT A LAWYER REVIEWING IT!  There are too many fraudsters in south Florida that prey on the elderly.   Senior citizens must stay vigilant and have an attorney review any contract they are signing that involves significant rights-like the right of Renuen to lien their home!  This is a CONSUMER ALERT THAT EVERYONE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO.
