Be aware of fraud when when transacting (especially when transferring funds).
Cybercrime fraud is a real and increasing threat, particularly with the risk of criminals intercepting emails and fraudulently changing legitimate payment account details with the objective of stealing your money. Please be vigilant and ensure caution at all times when responding to any requests for your bank details. Our Solicitor's bank account details will not change during the course of a transaction. We will not accept responsibility if you transfer money to an incorrect bank account.
Speak to your Solicitor before transferring any money. If you receive an email or any other method of contact from us requesting or changing bank details, please contact your Solicitor immediately to clarify. Be aware that a phishing email (an email not from the legitimate source) may contain fraudulent contact details, please identify our contact details via other means.
