Spoof calls


Posted on 4th November 2019
We have been made aware that one of our corporate telephone lines has been subject to malicious ‘spoofing’.

Spoofing is when scammers use easily-accessible technology to change the number that appears on the caller ID display of your phone to show a legitimate number – in this instance a direct line from a partner at Blake Morgan.

We are aware that the fraudsters were asking call recipients to answer a series of survey questions. We would like to thank those who have brought this to our attention. While the information we have received does not suggest any criminal activity has taken place, we are aware that fraudsters can use spoof calls to seek to elicit personal details, bank details and passwords. If you have received a spoof call and are concerned about fraudulent activity, please report the incident to the Police on their non-emergency line 101.

Alternatively nuisance calls can be reported to the ICO here.

While we have no control over this activity, we apologise to anyone who has been inconvenienced by calls of this nature and have taken the appropriate action to protect our clients and contacts by reporting the incident to Ofcom and our telecoms provider who have disconnected the line.

Thank you for your support.
