The Legal Profession’s Catfishing Problem

Scammers frequently impersonate lawyers in fraudulent emails in order to get recipients to take those emails seriously, according to Victoria Hudgins at Legaltech News. Legal threats or directives are more likely to catch someone’s attention than are many other phishing lures, and potential victims are usually more willing to follow instructions if they think they’re talking to a lawyer. Hudgins cites an email from the UK’s Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) which highlighted the extent of this problem.
