12 Complaints

13 Bank Account Fraud

Emails are open communications and so are NOT secure. Please do not EVER send us bank account details by email. If this is unavoidable YOU must telephone US to check we have the right details. Our bank account details NEVER change. If you receive an email or telephone call from us asking you to transfer funds to a different bank account to the one notified to you in hard copy, it is FAKE. Do not send any money but telephone us immediately. Third parties sending funds to us having received bank details by email or telephone, do so at their own risk. We do not accept liability for any losses sustained by anyone responding to fraudulent emails or telephone calls.

14 Telephone Number Spoofing

Is where criminals use software so that when calls are received the number that comes up is different to the one they are calling from and may show as the number of a firm of solicitors. The criminals will then pretend to be solicitors and ask for payments to be made to a bank account that they control, which can result in large losses for clients. To protect yourself, if you receive a call from someone saying they are calling from JCP Solicitors and they give you bank details over the phone you should:-

  1. Call us back on 01792 773773, to check the details BEFORE making any payments or transfers; and
  2. If in any doubt DO NOT make the payment or transfer (criminals will often try and rush you by saying it is urgent or must be done immediately)
