Watch out for this scam

The Legal Practitioners Fidelity Fund (LPFF) has issued a notice to warn legal practitioners of a scam targeting law firms in order to defraud them.

Legal practitioners are being contacted by a person claiming to be a ‘representative’ of the LPFF. The person informs the legal practitioner that overpayments or payments were made in error, and they try to induce the practitioner to repay these monies.

Legal practitioners can contact Ernest Tshidzumba of the LPFF on 012 622 3900 to report any suspicious behaviour.
