Email scam alerts

Sep 21, 2015

Beware of unexpected emails that seem to come from law firms or a friend/colleague, requesting that you open an attachment.

The email may include content such as legal threats if the attachment is not opened, or claim that the attachment is an invoice or payment receipt.

If you have any doubt about the email’s validity, do not open this attachment as it may be a virus which can compromise your data and your firm’s computer network. Sometimes the objective is to obtain money or personal information.

If you get an unexpected email from a friend or colleague asking for sensitive information, to open an attachment or click on a link, it’s best to call them and verify that the request is really from that person before you continue.
