Be on your guard - Email scams

Data privacy in adoption proceedings... why are so many data controllers still getting it wrong?

Stephensons is constantly staying on top of the latest scams and developments to make sure your data is safe. 

We are aware of the increasing number of emails in circulation purporting to be from law firms requesting payment on account or bank details. These scams target the public at large, often using the letterhead and branding of a law firm.

These emails are often sent with attachments which could contain malware or spyware.

These are scam emails and as such should be deleted immediately. Do not open any attachments.

We would like to assure all of our clients and contacts that Stephensons will never ask for bank details over an email. If you doubt the validity of any communication requesting payment or have any concerns about an existing payment, please call 01616 966 229.
