MW Keller Solicitors has advised the Society of a sophisticated phishing attempt utilising the branding of the firm.

The email puports to come from a Michael O'Grady and invites recipients to download conveyancing documents.

While the branding is correct, keen observers will note that there are three 'lll's in the email, which emanates from a '.com' address rather than Mr O'Grady's correct '.ie' address. Current contact details can be verified through the Law Directory or Find a Solicitor section of the Law Society website.

Actions

As always, practitioners are advised to treat emails containing links to access or upload files with caution, particularly if they are unexpected, and to verify colleague contact details through trusted channels such as lawsociety.ie. Members who have received this email should delete it without delay. If anyone within the office clicked on the link, they should contact their IT providers without delay.
