A recent bulletin from CIFAS (Credit Industry Fraud Avoidance Service) has warned of scams involving 'domain slamming', which they describe as an 'attempt by third parties to obtain money by pressurising individuals or companies into paying for domain name renewals or similarly named domains'.

This is something which could be targeted at law firms.

You can read the full CIFAS bulletin for details and potential proventative measures.
