Internet lawyer wantedThere’s a myth out there that one can do whatever you please online and get away with it if your business is not based in the United States.

Although there are international con artists who set up multiple scams off shore and keep one step ahead of the law, many get caught and pay the price. As an Internet lawyer, I see these cases all of the time.

For example, there’s a 26-year-old guy who committed computer fraud and other crimes. He was just extradited to the United States from Estonia and will be prosecuted. If convicted, he could spend 20+ years of his life in a U.S. federal prison.

In addition, the government plans to seize and confiscate all of the profits from his illegal activities. It’s hard to pay for a good Internet lawyer or criminal defense lawyer after the government has taken your assets.

If you’re doing business online with U.S. clients, you’re going to want to make sure that you don’t violate U.S. Internet law.

To your online success!
