The website https://www․josephfrasiersolicitors․co․uk is operating, falsely claiming to be a firm of solicitors.

What is the scam?

The website https://www․josephfrasiersolicitors․co․uk is operating, falsely claiming to be a firm of solicitors.

The website provides the telephone numbers "08456 537 529" and "1800 106 107". The website also provides an email address of info@jfsllp.co.uk.

The SRA does not authorise or regulate a firm of solicitors called “Joseph Frasier Solicitors”. Any business or transaction undertaken through the above website or through the telephone numbers and email address above is not undertaken by a solicitor’s practice or individual authorised or regulated by the SRA.

Is there a genuine firm or person?

The SRA did authorise and regulate a genuine firm of solicitors called Joseph Frasier Solicitors LLP, which closed in April 2018.

What should I do?

When a firm's or individual's identity has been copied exactly (or cloned), due diligence is necessary. If you receive correspondence claiming to be from the above firm(s) or individual(s), or information of a similar nature to that described, you should conduct your own due diligence by checking the authenticity of the correspondence by contacting the law firm directly by reliable and established means. You can contact the SRA to find out if individuals or firms are regulated and authorised by the SRA and verify an individual's or firm's practising details. Other verification methods, such as checking public records (e.g. telephone directories and company records) may be required in other circumstances.
