Cybercrime and Scams
Cybercrime is increasing, so it’s essential 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, solicitors and law firms to make themselves appear genuine and increase their chances of tricking victims into sending money to them.
Scams can be emails, text messages, telephone calls or direct mail, which seem legitimate and very convincing. It is essential to be vigilant and carefully verify any unusual requests or suspicious communications purporting to come from the firm.
Be careful if someone asks you to send sensitive personal information or money or purports to notify you of changes to critical business information by email.
If you receive unusual communications purporting to be from Axis Solicitors or any of our solicitors or employees about which you are uncertain or suspicious, please get in touch with us immediately. You can email email@example.com or the partner in charge of compliance directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have been a scam victim, we will encourage you to report this to the police via https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/. We will not be able to assist you in recovering any money you have lost, and we will not be responsible for any losses resulting from scam communications, but we will take this matter seriously. We will report all scams and identity fraud incidents to the police and Solicitors Regulation Authority.
You can find more information about current frauds, cybercrime and scams involving lawyers on the Solicitors Regulation Authority website https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/scam-alerts/
