Scammers masquerading as employees of the UK's top law firms to phish citizens

Online scammers and phishers are masquerading as associates of the UK's largest law firms such as DLA Piper and sending phishing emails to targeted victims to lure them into transferring money into their accounts, the Solicitors Regulation Authority has warned.
Late last week, the Solicitors Regulation Authority warned people that certain unknown cyber criminals were sending emails to unsuspecting targets by misusing the identity of solicitors Anna Middlebrook and Alan Cunningham of DLA Piper UK LLP.
