Warning: Letter misusing the name of the SRA Claims Management department

The SRA has been informed that a letter claiming to be from the SRA Claims Management department has been provided to an estate agent as proof of funds.

What is the scam?

The SRA is aware that a letter claiming to be from the SRA Claims Management department has been provided to an estate agent as proof of funds, in respect of a potential property purchase. The letter says that the recipient of the letter has been awarded a significant sum of money in respect of a claim on the SRA Compensation Fund. 

The letter provides the genuine contact details for the SRA.
