Hoax Emails – Sept 2016
We are aware that emails are circulating with the Subject line “Revised Contract” and look like they have originated from “Laura Walton” but from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, this isn’t a genuine email from this firm.
Laura Walton was a Solicitor here at Oakwood Solicitors but the email is Spam. If you recieve this email then please do not open the attachment and delete the email.
It looks as if these email are also purporting to come from Stewarts Solicitors and DC Law too.
It is easy for fraudsters to initiate scams today, so we ask all clients to be vigilant when receiving emails, telephone calls, texts or letters out of the blue from us.
If you see something that doesn’t look right or you are suspicious about then we are more than happy for you to contact us to check it out.
The intention of these fraudsters and criminals is to either get money from you or some personal information (from which they can gain money by pretending to be you), so please be suspicious of any unsolicited contact, poor written emails, or contact from overseas. Never provide any personal information to anyone you don’t know personally.
