A man accused of portraying himself as a legal consultant and a representative of a well-known, but now defunct law firm, has been arrested by HCSO deputies. He’s charged with credit/debit card abuse and stealing more than $100,000 from a single client.
Victims says Jeffrey Wayne Wilson, 34, told them he was a legal consultant for a large Houston area law firm and charged them thousands of dollars in exchange for legal work.
One of the victims gave Wilson $100,000 for work he never performed nor did he have the authorization to perform. She also discovered Wilson had been using her debit card number for personal unauthorized purchases for himself.
Investigators believe there are other victims out there who sought Wilson’s legal help believing he would take care of their case but instead received nothing in return. They are asked to call the HCSO’s Financial Crimes Unit at 713-967-5770.
Wilson is in the Harris County Jail with no bond. His photo is attached.
