Peter Mackwin.LLP solicitor ... NOT

18 November 2016

A rather clumsy fraud is being attempted by email on New Zealanders from someone who pretends to be a barrister, solicitor and personal attorney. The fraud is an old one, with the "lawyer" pretending his deceased "client" had the same name as the person to whom the email is sent.
