Law Firm News | 2010/09/06 23:17

The Secret Service says a South Carolina law firm lost $390,000 in a counterfeit check scam.

Authorities told The Post and Courier of Charleston the scammers called the law firm and requested an attorney to help collect on a debt, offering to pay a retainer.

Investigator say before any work was done, the scammer called back and said the threat of legal action settled the matter, then sent the law firm two checks, one for the retainer and the second the supposed "settlement."

Authorities say the scammer asked the law firm to send the settlement to an overseas bank account. After the money was wired, the check was found to be bogus.

The Secret Service did not identify the Charleston firm, or a second firm that figured out the scam before being taken.

The Rosen Law Firm Announces Investigation
Law Firm News | 2010/09/03 23:18

The Rosen Law Firm today announced that it has commenced an investigation into allegations that China-Biotics, Inc. ("China-Biotics" or the "Company") may have violated the federal securities laws by issuing false and misleading statements to investors about its business and financial condition.

Recently, market commentators have published reports questioning the truth of China-Biotics' disclosures about the nature, quality, and number of the Company's retail outlets. Additionally, a recent report calls into question the veracity of China Biotics' financial statements filed with the SEC for the fiscal years ended 2007 and 2008; China Biotics' financial statements filed with the SEC report much higher revenue, income, and assets than the financial statements filed by China Biotics' main operating subsidiary Shanghai Shining Biotechnology Co., Ltd. with the China State Administration for Industry and Commerce.

As a result of these allegations, the Rosen Law Firm is preparing a class action lawsuit on behalf of investors who suffered losses purchasing China-Biotics stock.
