Beware of scammers pretending to be the Law Society
We have been informed that some members have received phishing emails from scammers pretending to work for the Law Society.
The email claims to be sent from ‘MS-Support-Team <email@example.com>’ and has the subject line ‘7 Pending Report.eml’.
Within the email, recipients are asked to click on a link and enter their Microsoft Office 365 credentials.
We take IT security very seriously. Our team has carried out an investigation, which concluded that the emails were not sent from the Law Society systems and no Law Society data had been compromised.
We ask you to be vigilant in order to prevent fraud.
- Please delete any emails with the subject ‘7 Pending Report.eml’ and block ‘gim.marvis1010.repl[.]co’ and let us know through our website contact form
- If you have clicked on the link and entered your password for Microsoft Office 365, change your login credentials as soon as possible
- Verify the authenticity of any emails that appear to be from the Law Society – we will never ask for your username or password
