Solicitors Regulation Authority - Scam Email

26 February 2014

It has come to our attention that a number of Solicitors' firms have recently received an email purporting to be from the Solicitors Regulation Authority advising them of an impending investigation.   The email address of the sender does not end with the suffix @sra.org.uk and has not been sent by the SRA.  These emails also contain an attachment which may contain a virus. 

The SRA advise that if you receive an email of this kind then you should forward it to fraud@sra.org.uk and then delete it without opening the attachments.  If you have already opened the attachment then you should immediately advise both your IT administrator and your Bank.

To see an example of the email follow this link to the SRA website. http://www.sra.org.uk/sra/news/scam-email-sra.page

This highlights the constant and ever more sophisticated techniques employed by criminals to infiltrate Solicitors' firms.  If you feel your firm could benefit from Data Protection training or Anti-Money Laundering Training please do not hesitate to contact our Head of CPD Training, Stephen Carris on 07798 754103 or stephen.carris@lbslegal.co.uk
