I earlier contacted your management and was asked to reach out to you on this matter immediately. Could you kindly check your records and advice accordingly as soon as possible?

Bogus rewards, scams, threats or claims

Criminals may pose as someone from Bird & Bird, or claim allegiance with Bird & Bird, in order to carry out scams or frauds.

Scam e-mails, which are typically badly written, appearing to come from Bird & Bird, or apparently other legitimate law firms, may indicate that:

  • someone has filed a copyright or other lawsuit against you or you are summoned to appear in court; or
  • the addressee of the e-mail has inherited a substantial sum of money or suggest some other benefit; or
  • goods are ready for delivery by courier; or
  • goods are for sale at discounter prices.

In some cases the sender has been able to spoof the e-mail domain address of the legitimate law firm.

The messages may simply be an attempt to lure you into paying them money as an advance fee or for you to give them your banking details. In other cases the e-mail may contain a malicious attachment or web link. If a user opens the attachment or follows the link, a malicious code may be installed on the user's system without the user being aware.

We recommend that you delete any scam emails you receive and do not reply to scam letters. 

We suggest:

  • You do not follow unsolicited web links and do not open unsolicited e-mail messages.
  • You maintain up-to-date antivirus software.
  • Use caution when visiting untrusted websites.
  • Do not respond with money or banking or other personal information.
  • If in doubt, check the authenticity with us – see below. Please do report scams to us in any event.

Note that we do not use Gmail, Hotmail or other web based email accounts.

Be alert to unknown callers requesting personal information or bank details purporting to be from Bird & Bird. If you are not expecting such a call please end the call and redial our main switchboard number, asking to speak to your usual Bird & Bird contact.
