Warning: Website for 'Moriah Brown Law Firm' misusing images of solicitors

5 December 2023

A website at is operating and falsely misusing the images of two solicitors.

What is the scam?

A website at is operating and falsely misusing the images of two solicitors.

The website provides the email address and claims to be for a law firm in Ghana, but provides a telephone number of +1(602)837-4380 and addresses in Colorado Springs, United States; Phoenix, United States and Medellín, Colombia. 

However, it also provides the names of 'Moriah Brown', 'James Fenton', 'Amelia Fox' and 'Maurice Fynn' as being part of its team, and the images used for 'Amelia Fox' and 'Maurice Fynn' is a misuse of the images of genuine solicitors (see below).

The SRA does not authorise and regulate solicitors called 'Moriah Brown', 'James Fenton', 'Amelia Fox' or 'Maurice Fynn'.

Any business or transaction through 'Moriah Brown Law Firm' or the consultants listed (including 'Amelia Fox' and 'Maurice Fynn') is not undertaken by a firm or individual authorised and regulated by the SRA.

Is there a genuine firm or person?

The SRA authorises and regulates solicitors called Benedikte Malling Bech and Mark Julian Sullivan, who work at a genuine firm of solicitors called North Star Law Ltd. Their images appear on the above website, falsely purporting to be that of 'Amelia Fox' and 'Maurice Fynn' respectively.

The genuine Benedikte Malling Bech and Mark Julian Sullivan have confirmed they have no genuine connection to the above website.

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.
