Scam call alert
13 November 2015
Members of the public are advised to beware of any unsolicited calls regarding legal matters such as personal injuries claims.
Several calls to private individuals by people saying they are from the “Law Society” or law firms with names similar to well-known real law firms have been reported to Queensland Law Society.
The callers reportedly have poor English skills and have been known to call the same person repeatedly.
Queensland Law Society and all reputable law firms do not ‘cold call’ individuals. The public is advised to hang up on any of these callers and report the incident to the police and their telephone service provider.
