WARNING REGARDING CYBERCRIME
Fraudsters are targeting solicitors firms by sending bogus emails or letters informing people that the firm’s bank details have changed and asking for payment to be made to their bank account rather than the firm’s. Our bank account details have not changed for many years and we have no plans to change them in the foreseeable future. If you receive any communication by email, letter or phone that appears to come from us, providing different bank details to the ones supplied at the outset or indicating a change in our bank details, please contact us by telephone immediately using the normal telephone number that you would use for us and ask to be put through to the accounts department. Do not reply to the email/letter or act on any information contained in it. We will not accept responsibility if you transfer money to an incorrect account.
