What's going on

Criminals use sophisticated methods and information technology to obtain bank account details and other facts from law firms. Often this is so that money can be extracted from either the client account or office account.

Criminals either attempt to trick firms into giving away IT details, infiltrate their computer systems, or use a combination of the two. Clients’ IT can also be "hacked" in this way.
