SRA Warning: misuse of Rowlinson Solicitors name

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has issued a warning of con artists claiming to be from legitimate solicitor Lynne Rowlinson at Rowlinsons Solicitors Limited.

The SRA has been informed that a number of individuals across the country have been sent emails purportedly from Lynne Rowlinson, alleging the recipient that they may be entitled to the benefit of a deceased client’s estate.
