Several Iowa law firms have recently reported to the ISBA that they have been contacted by a potential client named "Charles Gomez" for purposes of forcing his employer "Cardinal Health" to pay a severance agreement. The firms, upon further contact with the "client," have determined this to be an elaborate and sophisticated scam.

You can read details of how the client correspondence played out from the blog of Day Rettig Martin, P.C. in Cedar Rapids. If you are a victim of this scam, please report it to the Iowa Attorney General.
