Public asked to be aware of mimicking scam letters

We have had a recent report made to us by a member of the public that mimicking scam letters could be in circulation purporting to be correspondence from Fosters Solicitors LLP.

This person had sent to them a letter claiming to be from a James Foster of Fosters Solicitors – providing details of a court case, asking the recipient to submit copies of ID documents and banking information, as well as asking them to make a bank transfer.

We can confirm that this letter is a scam and nothing to do with Fosters Solicitors LLP. We do not have a James Foster working at our organisation. The company address details are also stated incorrectly, as well as the letter being poorly written. Any official communication from us would never ask for such information to be provided, especially to those who are not clients of our firm.

Although we have received only one report of this nature, we would ask the public to be aware of such mimicking letters and if they should receive any communication they are not expecting to receive from us, please feel free to contact us at enquiries@fosters-solicitors.co.uk for more information and to report the correspondence.
