Fraud Alert

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF ILLEGAL SCAMS IN OPERATION WHERE OUR NAME AND THOSE OF OUR LAWYERS ARE BEING ABUSED

February 2014

Our name and sometimes the names of individual lawyers within our firm have been used in various fraudulent scam emails, letters and phone calls. These communications typically seek to attract a victim by suggesting that an inheritance or a job can be obtained by paying an upfront fee. Another variant is to send demands for money in relation to non-existent claims. Sometimes fake documents are sent to the victim. Common themes include the will of 'Robert Adler', offers of security work or other employment in the Middle East, or financing transactions with Dale Maharaj.

This is not an exhaustive list of scams. New ones are being invented all the time. Please act cautiously for your own protection. These scams aim to get your money and/or your personal data to use in other illegal activities. They may not always request money or personal details on initial contact, but often wait until the victim has responded.

Please note that this firm and its lawyers have no involvement in these or any other scams. Our name is being used in an unauthorised and illegal way. Note that we do not use gmail, hotmail or yahoo addresses.

We recommend you delete scam emails and do not reply to scam letters. If you need to check with us whether a communication is genuine, pleaseĀ contact us
