Cyber crime and scams
Cyber crime is on the increase, so it’s important to be vigilant and look out for anything suspicious.
A scam is a type of fraud that criminals use to trick you into giving them money and personal details. Fraudsters often use the names of lawyers, barristers and law firms to make themselves appear genuine and increase their chances of tricking victims into sending money to them.
Scams can take the form of emails, text messages, telephone calls or direct mail which can seem legitimate and very convincing. It is important to be vigilant and carefully verify any unusual requests or suspicious communications purporting to come from the firm.
If you receive unusual communications purporting to be from us or any of our advisers or employees about which you are uncertain or suspicious, please contact us immediately. You can email email@example.com or email the partner in charge of compliance directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have been a victim of a scam, we would encourage you to report this to the police via https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/. We will not be able to assist you to recover any money that you have lost and we will not be responsible for any losses resulting out of scam communications, but we will take this matter seriously. We will report all incidents of scams and identity fraud to the police and Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner.
