June 2020 - Guard Against Coronavirus Scams

Coronavirus Scam Unfortunately, there has been an increase in con artists perpetrating new and old scams in the midst of the coronavirus. Beware. Here are some of the common ones:

Stimulus/Government Assistance Scams: The government will never ask you to pay anything up front to get this money. Stimulus funds will be sent by check or direct deposit. If someone calls and asks for your Social Security number, bank account or credit card to receive government assistance, they are a scammer. To receive assistance, you must file an application and meet the qualifications for one of the available government grants or SBA loans.

Fake Mandatory COVID-19 Test Scams: Certain scammers pose as employees of a government department and may send a text or email message concerning “mandatory” COVID-19 testing. The message instructs you to click on a link which, the scammer claims, will allow you to complete an online test or register to get tested. In actuality, the link gives the scammer access to your financial, medical and other personal information.

Grandparent/Family Scams: The scammers have instituted a new twist on an old scam during the coronavirus. In this version, the scammer uses an unfamiliar email or phone number and poses as a friend or family member who has contracted the virus and is desperate for money. Refrain from wiring funds or sending a gift card. Instead, contact your relative or friend directly to see what help, if any, they need.

Phony Charities and Crowdfunding: While it is admirable to give donations during a time of such great need, be cautious. Do your homework. Make sure to research where a charitable donation is going and visit the NJ website for more information about the status and requirements for legitimate charities. As for crowdfunding, be sure to understand the terms and conditions of the specific campaign and read all the comments you can relating to the appeal. Don’t be rushed into giving and beware of any campaign that specifies donations must be made in cash, gift card of wired funds!

Be careful and stay healthy!

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

Mr. Rotolo has helped me numerous times in legal matters and has continued to support and help me through countless hardships.

He is a respectable, hardworking, kind hearted man and I would recommend his legal services to anyone.

- Matthew

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

- Kim

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
