Craigslist Fraud Defense Lawyer

Attorney David T. Schlendorf of Toms River, New Jersey, has been a criminal defense lawyer since 1997, first as a prosecutor and now as a criminal defense attorney. This allows him to identify errors in the prosecution's case more readily and ensure that the client was correctly charged in any type of computer crime case. In addition, he is certified as a criminal trial attorney by the New Jersey State Bar Association, a status awarded to only 2 percent of the state's lawyers.

He defends clients against Craigslist fraud charges involving:

  • Marketing scams, such as work-from-home schemes and fraudulent offers to help start a business
  • Identity theft that takes the form of asking the victim/buyer to scan his or her passport or driver's license when making a purchase through Craigslist
  • Phishing by using e-mail to drive the victim to a landing page that mimics a Craigslist account page to collect personal and financial information
  • Overpayment scams in which a buyer accidentally writes a bogus check or counterfeit money order for more than the sale price and asks the seller to pay the difference

Mr. Schlendorf makes sure that the prosecution's evidence was collected in accordance with the law and that your rights are protected. If you are convicted, he will seek reduced or alternative penalties such as probation or restitution. Clients can be assured that he will fight for the best outcome possible in matters involving Craigslist fraud charges.
