Internet Scammers Banned

By Internet Lawyer

internet lawyer and scamsThere is no gray area when it comes to Internet scams. You’re either for Internet con artists or against them.

As an Internet lawyer, I believe that now is the time for clarity on this issue. Today, I am drawing a line in the sand. ..

If you are an Internet scam artist, do not contact my business about legal representation.

And just to be on the safe side, I’m pushing the line a little further in favor of ethics.

Do not contact me about legal representation if you…

  • Sell or promote make money online (MMO) products unless you can provide written proof in a form acceptable to me that your net annual income from your online business is at least $100,000 for the past three (3) years excluding income earned selling MMO products.
  • Own or represent a network marketing venture
  • Sell or promote business opportunities (biz opps) that violate the FTC Business Opportunity Rule.
  • Sell or promote alternative health products with claims that cannot be directly substantiated with reputable published peer-reviewed studies.
  • Directly or indirectly market to individuals using telephone “boiler rooms.”
  • Use religion as a means to manipulate prospects into purchasing from you.
  • If your business doesn’t fit one of the above categories, you may be eligible for legal help.

    However, if you become a client, you are expected to abide by the Internet Ethics Council’s (IEC) Code of Professional Responsibility whether or not you are a member of the IEC…

    Rule 1. We follow the Internet Marketing Golden Rule, that is, we treat our clients with the same courtesy and respect that we would like to receive as a client.
    Rule 2. We follow all applicable Internet and e-mail marketing laws and regulations to the best of our ability.
    Rule 3. We provide our website visitors and clients with at least two valid ways to contact us with questions or concerns.
    Rule 4. We respond to client service inquiries within two (2) business days.
    Rule 5. We use clear Privacy Policies, Terms of Use, and Returns Policies to fully explain our relationships with website visitors and clients, including the type of personal information that we collect and how that data is used by us or others.
    Rule 6. We offer at least a 30-day refund policy from date of initial purchase and honor timely refund requests within five (5) business days of receipt.
    Rule 7. We fully disclose payment and all other material terms of offers made to prospective purchasers.

    In other words, if you run an ethical business that delivers value, you’re exactly the type of person I’d like to help put into place the right Internet legal shield to protect you.

    Your Internet Legal Shield

    By Internet Lawyer

    What is an Internet legal shield? The concept dates back to knights fighting each other on the battle field.

    To be effective, a knight needed a shield bearer known as a “squire.” An experienced squire would provide the knight with the right protection. If the knight were captured, the squire would try to rescue him.

    As time went by, however, the rule of law replaced trial by battle.

    Law is the safest helmet; under the shield of the law no one is deceived.
    – Sir Edward Coke (1606)

    Today, entrepreneurs need an Internet legal shield to protect themselves from lawsuits and government investigations while doing business online.
