Holland & Knight Warns of Fraudulent Email Scam Using Firm Name
Holland & Knight has recently learned that our firm’s name is being used in connection with an e-mail phishing scam. This scam is not a result of a data breach at Holland & Knight. Several legal industry publications have reported on these types of scams, which involve fictitious “notices to appear” and notices of eviction or other legal proceedings. It is believed that clicking on links included in the email may result in malware or a virus being loaded on the recipient’s computer.
Email scams and other internet security risks are not uncommon, and, as attorneys, we recommend you take steps to protect the security of your personal information and technology devices.
