Checking frauds by legal professionals 13/10/1991 NSUNT By S. Jayakrishnan
CASE ONE: Watchman Muthu, the sole bread-winner in his family, had long dreamed of having a roof over his head. After almost two decades, he finally saved enough to place a down-payment for a low-cost house. He sought the help of a lawyer to carry out the transaction with the developer. Unfortunately, the unscrupulous lawyer made off with his savings and the loan he had obtained from a bank to finance the purchase of his dream home. Muthu who has been left in a quandary now has to contend with the monthly repayment of the loan apart from supporting his family of six on his dwindling meagre salary. His quest for a home of his own remains a pipe-dream. CASE TWO: Teacher Ahmad had his heart set on buying his dream house - a single-storey terrace house. Having obtained a Government loan, he contacted a lawyer to carry out the necessary documentation. Two months later, the lawyer disappeared with his down-payment and the loan that was approved by the bank. For Ahmad and his family of five, it was a shattering experience. He now holds two jobs and drives a taxi part-time to enable him to repay his loan. ALTHOUGH the names are fictitious, cases such as these are on the rise.
