The A/C privilege attaches when the, even potential, client interacts with the attorney as an attorney.  Thus, the conversation on the courthouse steps, where the attorney gets stopped by someone, is privileged.
As for the fraud, wouldn't this be an ongoing fraud that is an exception to the A/C privilege/confidentiality?  Having said that, I'd also wait for the court to compel.

 
 
I think under the ABA and the Model Rules the exceptions would be crime, fraud and attorney client dispute.   Also, I someone was confusing work product doctrine with the attorney client privilege.   Work product is anything prepared in anticipation of litigation.   Attorney client is representation and confidentiality is the broader concept of confidences and secrets disclosed.   Though....I am not entirely sure.   I guess I would have to look it up.

I recently went to CA and spoke with an attorney.
 
I was told that 99.9% attorneys are trying to rip off his or her clients.
 
Can anyone explain what this means?

According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, "rip off" means 1 : an act or instance of stealing : THEFT; also : a financial exploitation.
