Recently people have been coming forward stating that they’ve received calls from an organization claiming to represent Legal Aid Society and collecting money on its behalf. The phone number (1-800-985-3544) currently has no one answering. This information and the possibility of a scam has been reported to some state's Attorney General's offices who are continuing to keep a close eye on the issue. The national organization, NLADA has also been informed of the issue.

If you receive a call, please be sure it is from a reputable legal aid agency. Do not give your information or give money over the phone.
