We have been informed of scam emails being sent to law firms and claiming to be from a client in connection with the purchase of a property.
This particular scam involved two emails being sent consecutively. The first asks for clarification on what information would be needed to provide a quote. A second email contains a PDF attachment which claims to contain all the information required to produce a fee note.
These emails generally have no ‘To’ line and appear as if the email is part of a wider Bcc.
Do not click the link to download the attachment on these emails.
If you suspect a fraud, or other internet crime, remember to report it on the Action Fraud website.
Where a fraud or scam has actually taken place, it should be reported directly to Police Scotland.
