Fraudulent Business Transactions in the U.S.

By Attorney Yoel Molina, Law Office of Yoel Molina, P.A.




As a business and corporate attorney based in Miami, Florida, I understand the unique challenges faced by non-native English speakers and international clients conducting business in the United States. At the Law Office of Yoel Molina, P.A., we pride ourselves on our commitment to guiding our clients through the complex legal landscape, ensuring their transactions are secure and transparent. With a stellar 4.9-star rating on Google and an "Excellent" rating on AVVO, our office is dedicated to providing top-tier legal assistance.


Here are ten critical steps to help you avoid being tricked into a fraudulent business transaction when doing business in the U.S.:


1. Understand the Legal Framework: Familiarize yourself with U.S. business laws and regulations. Consulting with a knowledgeable attorney can provide you with the necessary insights and guidance.


2. Conduct Due Diligence: Always research potential business partners thoroughly. Use reputable sources to check their financial health, reputation, and legal status.


3. Seek Professional Advice: Engage with professionals such as lawyers, accountants, and business advisors who are proficient in U.S. business practices.


4. Use Clear Language Contracts: Ensure all contracts are written in clear, understandable language. If English is not your first language, request a translation or a bilingual contract.


5. Verify Identity and Credentials: Confirm the identity and credentials of all parties involved in the transaction. This includes checking state business registries and professional licensing boards.


6. Watch for Unusual Requests: Be cautious of transactions that require unusual payment methods, such as untraceable wire transfers, or those that involve overly complex or secretive arrangements.


7. Maintain Documentation: Keep detailed records of all communications, agreements, and transactions. Documentation can be crucial in resolving disputes and proving the integrity of your transactions.


8. Implement Secure Payment Methods: Use secure, traceable payment methods for all transactions. Avoid cash transactions whenever possible.


9. Stay Informed About Scams: Educate yourself about common scams targeting nonresidents and non-native speakers in the U.S. Stay updated on new fraud trends by subscribing to alerts from financial and legal institutions.


10. Establish Local Contacts: Develop relationships with local businesses and advisors. Having trusted contacts within the U.S. can provide you with additional insights and assistance.
