Phishing is an attempt to require sensitive information, such as user names, passwords and card details (and sometimes indirectly money), by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Unfortunately, Phishing does happen to professionals such as solicitors.
We would like to reassure clients that in the event of you receiving any e-mail that may be sent purporting to be from Mackarness & Lunt, we will never contact you out of the blue and ask for payment by e-mail, your card details, pin details etc, these are likely to be phishing e-mails. If you have any concerns with regard to an e-mail please contact us on 01730 265111.
In the event of any phishing we can reassure clients that we hold the appropriate safeguards to protect any data that we hold on behalf of clients.
