Note about an email scam targeting barristers

2 December 2016

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) has been made aware this morning about a bogus email targeting barristers from an email account claiming to be from "The Consumer Ombudsman". The email suggests that the barrister has been the subject of a complaint.

This is not anything to do with the BSB and we expect that the link within the email contains malware. We urge all barristers to disregard the email and delete it.
