It has come our attention today, that unfortunately our business telephone number has been compromised – In fact we have had a number of people calling us to notify us that they have recieved a call today from our number – when in fact our business has not reached out to them.
This is known as Spoofing. It is when a telephone scammer, takes the Caller ID from another business and uses it in a criminal way.
We are currently doing all that we can to report this incident and have it rectified.
Advice from JMR Solictiors:
Never give out your personal information in response to an incoming call, or rely upon the Caller ID as the sole means of identification, particularly if the caller asks you to carry out an action which might have financial consequences.
If you have received an incoming call from 0161 491 3933, then politely hang up and give us a call back yourself – this way you will get through to our automated service and you will be speaking to someone who is genuinely from JMR Solicitors.
We would like to take this opportunity to apologise if you have had any of these nuisance calls and please be reassured, we will do everything to make these calls stop.
Please call us yourself
Rather than discuss your matter with the representative who claims to be from JMR Solicitors, please hang up and call 0161 491 3933 yourself and we will speak to you about your case directly.
Alternatively, send us an email on email@example.com and we will respond to your query in this way instead.
We will let everyone know when these calls have stopped so until then, please keep a lookout and do not share any sensitive information.
