Cyber fraud - a new hope?

Published on 23 November 2015

We have previously warned of the threat posed by fraudsters who are targeting solicitors’ client accounts to misappropriate funds (read our blog last February here).

The situation worsened to the extent that the Law Society issued an alert in February 2015.  Unfortunately, we have seen the frequency of the attacks increase again over recent months and a further alert was issued by the Law Society on 3 November 2015 in conjunction with the Council of Mortgage Lenders to raise awareness further.
