The Board of Bar Overseers is warning the legal community about
an email scam targeting various bars and bar members around the
country. The deceptive emails have the potential to corrupt
computer files. While the BBO is unaware of these attacks occurring
in Massachusetts, the fraudulent email being distributed may have a
subject line such as Massachusetts bar complaint
or Massachusetts bar past due invoice. Please monitor
all unexpected emails because other bars and
bar members have received these notices.
If you receive one of these fraudulent emails, DO NOT respond or
click on any attachments. Delete it immediately and call the BBO at
(617) 728-8767, if you have received or suspect that you have
received a fraudulent email.
