Spam email – Charles Coleman LLP brand misuse
18th May 2016
Today we have received many reports regarding a spam email purportedly sent from Charles Coleman LLP or a named solicitor who works for that firm.
Charles Coleman are a genuine firm of Solicitors and when we contacted them today they are as unhappy as us about this situation.
Unfortunately the same email uses our telephone number as a point of contact.
We have reported this matter to the SRA.

The current spam email has an attachment which will probably infect the PC or device on which it is opened.
Never open an attachment in an email that you feel is suspect or unexpected. Mark the email as spam and then delete it from your trash.
