You will find that there have been known cases where people who purchase structured settlements are conned by unscrupulous dealers.
Care should be taken when you want to purchase structured settlements. There is an incidence of some con men who tricked a buyer of structured settlements into paying them the lump sum that they had.
Now the purchaser of the structured settlement had all the assurance he needed that the structured settlement was indeed genuine.
This meant that he had over 1.5 million shillings on that particular settlement only. This greed blinded him and he ended up purchasing the structured settlement.
