Anti-Fraud Guidelines

Criminals are using increasingly sophisticated methods to target law firms and their clients. Most recently there have been multiple industry reports of seemingly convincing individuals contacting clients purporting to be an employee of the firm but with the sole intention of trying to extort personal details such as banking sort codes and account numbers.  At Mitchells Roberton trust is key and we are keen to raise awareness by providing reminders to help you avoid such scams.
