Warning ‘Bad Cheque’ Fraud


We have become aware that our name is being fraudulently used in a so called “bad cheque scam” targeting lawyers and attorneys in (and not limited to) America and Canada. An example of an initial email can be found below.

We only make enquiries from email addresses and never use Gmail, Hotmail or other free email services. We have also been notified that internet domains have been registered that closely resemble our own (see the example below). The authorities have been informed and a police report has been made. If you require further information then please do not hesitate to contact us.
