Important Warning about Wire Fraud and Phishing Schemes


​Cyber criminals are hacking email accounts and sending emails with fake wiring instructions. These emails are convincing and sophisticated. Always independently confirm wiring instructions in person or via a telephone call to a trusted and verified phone number for The Clifton Law Firm, LLC. Never wire money without double-checking that the wiring instructions are correct.


Phishing is when a scammer uses fraudulent emails or texts, or copycat websites to get you to share valuable personal information – such as account numbers, Social Security numbers, or your login IDs and passwords. Scammers use your information to steal your money or your identity or both. DO NOT click on any link or attachment until you have confirmed that the sender has sent you the email you are expecting, through the service provider they have indicated. The Clifton Law Firm, LLC utilizes a third party document delivery system to securely deliver your documents. However, you may see very convincing emails that purport to be from the same document delivery service that are in fact hackers attempting to get your information. Confirm with us prior to opening any documents or links.​​
