That check in the mail from BI lawyers may be legit

The Tri-City Herald is reporting that letters and checks sent to Washington consumers from Bainbridge-based Williamson and Williams Lawyers are legitimate.

Some have wondered if the checks, which are part of a settlement, may be a scam.

Not true, according to the Better Business Bureau.

As the Herald reports, the law firm was involved in a number of cases brought against companies that made illegal “robo-calls” or sent junk faxes.

Some consumers may receive a check even if they didn’t file a complaint.

To validate a check’s legitimacy, call Williamson and Williams at (206) 780-4447.
