The SRA has on 14 June published a scam alert over “Chameleon Solicitors” who are claiming to represent sellers on a property transaction in the West Midlands.
“Chameleon Solicitors” are advertised on a variety of directory websites, linking to an address at 63 Pershore Road, Kings Norton, Birmingham, West Midlands, B30 3DR. The directory listings also give a telephone number of 0121 685 0012 and fax number of 0121 685 0012.
The SRA does not regulate or authorise a firm called Chameleon Solicitors.
Any business or transactions through Chameleon Solicitors are not undertaken by a solicitor’s practice or individuals authorised or regulated by the SRA.
Any information or transactions using the details above, particularly if it involves the payment of money, should be reported to the police.
Solicitors can also report the matter to the SRA on 0845 8500999 or by email at [email protected]
The telephone number 0121 685 0012 is a telephone number for a genuine firm of solicitors, but the SRA has been informed that the genuine firm has no involvement in and is in no way connected to Chameleon Solicitors.
