Police advise: Lawyers don't ask for you to put several thousand dollars in cash in a box and then hand it over to a courier at a nearby post office
Boston Police report a Boston senior citizen in District D-4 (Back Bay, South End, Fenway) was scammed out of $9,500 on Friday by some guy who called him claiming to be a lawyer representing his nephew, who was allegedly in a car crash in Providence and needed the money immediately for bail:
The victim was instructed by the suspect to withdraw money from a bank and go to the Post Office, put the money in a box from the Post Office, and someone would come collect the money from him. The victim stated that an unknown black male in a white motor vehicle arrived at his address and took the box containing the U.S. Currency. /blockquote>
Police say if you get a call like this, hang up and call police to report it.

I can think of one plausible exception, but as far as I know Mr. Goodman is only licensed to practice law in New Mexico.
Unless they are
Well obviously if you're
Well obviously if you're doing business with Trump you need to get paid cash up front.
