Fraudsters Pretend to be Solicitors

We’ve been advised that mortgage lenders are seeing an increasing trend of fraud in the mortgage market. This relates to impersonation of solicitors who are dealing with customer’s conveyancing.

The fraudsters hack into solicitors email accounts and then email the customers (purporting to be solicitor) asking them to pay their deposit into the fraudsters bank account. This usually takes place around completion.

We advise you to telephone your solicitor if you receive an email asking you to make any payment (for instance for your deposit, or solicitors bill)  it is always better to check the validity of the request before making the payment.

At Town & Country Mortgages our priority is always to provide quality advice and service to our customers.
We strive to ask all our customers to provide feedback and below are extracts from questionnaires completed by our customers in 2014.

The Town & Country mortgage advisor was very helpful and explained the points I was unsure of and looked for the best mortgage that suited our circumstances.  I would recommend their services to anyone else looking.
