28 February 2022
This firm has recently been made aware of an email scam in which fraudsters have sent emails falsely claiming to be from 'James Saunders' of Saunders Law.
What is the scam?
Emails have been sent falsely claiming to be from 'James Saunders' of Saunders Law.
Individuals have been sent emails which invite victims of fraud to reclaim lost funds through Saunders Law and that an advance fee was required to achieve this. The emails provided fraudulent bank details and misused a picture of the genuine 'James Saunders'.
The emails were sent using the email address 'James.email@example.com'.
Please be aware that business or transactions made via the email address 'James.firstname.lastname@example.org' are not a genuine contact from the firm and we do not send out generic email messages to individuals who are not already our clients.
If you have received an email purporting to be from James Saunders, from the above email address, and you are not an existing client of the firm and it is asking you for money do not make any payment.
Please be aware of cybercrime. Saunders Law cannot take responsibility if money is lost in these circumstances. If you are ever unsure whether or not a request for payment of money is legitimate, please contact your solicitor or our accounts team. We cannot accept responsibility or liability for malicious or fraudulent emails purportedly coming from the firm. Please ensure that any emails coming to you from Saunders Law are genuine before relying on them in any way; again, a phone call to our Reception Team on 0207 632 4300 should clarify matters.
