Law Society issue warning over scam email
The Law Society has warned that any emails purporting to be them regarding ‘Find a Solicitor’ profiles should be treated with caution.
The emails allegedly from the Society alert the recipient that their ‘Find a Solicitor’ profile has been compromised, referring to a P1 and P2 form. However, Chancery Lane has confirmed that this is a scam and advise legal professionals to delete it.

In order to avoid the risk of others being affected, the Society has also warned that the email should not be forwarded or opened whatsoever.
