Warning: "Oncklaw" and the website "www․oncklaw․com"
3 May 2019
The website "www․oncklaw․com" is operating, falsely claiming to be for a firm of solicitors based in London.
What is the scam?
The website "www․oncklaw․com" is operating, falsely claiming to be for a firm of solicitors in London called "Oncklaw". The SRA does not authorise or regulate a firm of solicitors called "Oncklaw".
Through "www․oncklaw․com/contact-us/" the website provides an address of "14 Tottenham Road, London, N1 4EP", a contact number of "+44 203 389 7678" and an email address of "email@example.com".
The website provides details of two supposed employees "Kellan Dust" and "Laura Griffin" who are referred to as "bank and financial lawyers".
The SRA does not regulate or authorise a firm of solicitors called Oncklaw or any individual solicitors as named in the website.
Any business or transaction carried out through "Oncklaw" or the website or contact details set out above details is not undertaken by a firm or solicitor authorised or regulated by the SRA.
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.
