Keeping Tabs on Fraudulent Providers
Don't forget to keep track of who is on the DIR's naughty list when dealing with lien claimants. More names are being added to the list of providers who have been criminally charged and whose liens are stayed. We always recommend that our clients check this list before dealing with any lien claimant. The good lien claimant of today may become the fraudulent lien claimant of tomorrow.
