Scam emails are being sent to Scottish solicitors regarding a subscription invoice, the Law Society of Scotland reported today.

The Society has been informed of scam emails to law firms claiming to be attaching a subscription invoice from Xero, and stating that an amount will be debited from their credit card and inviting the recipient to click on a link.

It is reminding people not to click on any links contained in the emails, and if they suspect a fraud, or other internet crime, 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.

Further advice is available in the Society's cybersecurity guide, which includes tips for individuals receiving emails and what to think about before clicking on links and attachments.
