We have received a number reports about professionals in the industry receiving emails from an alleged international client intending to use the services of B Coming. The email, depending upon the recipient, seeks information from these professionals while including self-serving statements regarding B Coming. The communications are a scam. Our office has received similar emails as well as blog comments from this alleged “international couple”. There is no international couple seeking information in good faith. In actuality, the author of these communications resides in Los Angeles and the apparent motivation is to solicit negative information about B Coming. It should not be too difficult to figure out the underlying motivations for this scam.
Whether an industry professional or potential Intended Parent, I implore you do your research before working with or retaining a surrogate agency. Among other things, I encourage you to do a public records search to determine if there is any prior or pending litigation against the agency you are considering and the nature of the claims brought against them. As an illustration, a cursory public records search on B Coming would find two outstanding Superior Court Judgments against that organization in the last three years for amounts in excess of $250,000.00. You can view these judgments here and here.
Also, please do not accept the agency’s representations about any lawsuits against them. Further, review the staff that works at these agencies by doing a simple Google search to investigate their background. As we reported yesterday, there have been several victims of Bala Surrogacy that have alleged impropriety by that agency. I suspect many of these victims would have never used Bala Surrogacy had they known that the owner was the former Vice-President of Surrogensis. So please, do your own due diligence, obtain copies of any public records and make an informed decision before you retain an agency only to be victimized.
UPDATE: For those asking, the author of these emails will be using email addresses containing the names Xena or Xena Smith as well as using an email address to a non-existent entity known as “fertilitynewsusaandeurope” originating from a gmail account.
