Some of our clients have recently reported that they have received phone calls from scammers purporting to be from the High Court Sherriff’s Office.
They claim to have a high court writ, and that our clients have outstanding fees due. However, if they pay the amount in full (which is usually in the thousands of pounds!),then no further action will be taken.
Please take care if you receive any calls like this, and never give out any personal information, or pay anything without looking into the matter further.
If you do receive a call from someone claiming to be from the High Court, contact your local authority to confirm that it is genuine before taking any further action.
