Bogus email purporting to come from the BSB

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) has been made aware today of a bogus email purporting to come from the BSB and inviting the reader to click on a hyperlink for details of a supposed invoice.

The email was not sent by the BSB and we expect that the link within the email contains malware. We urge all barristers to disregard the email and delete it. Please do not click on the link.

We are sorry that we are being impersonated in this manner and for any inconvenience that this may cause. We regret that it is impossible for us to prevent this sort of activity.  

If you are ever in any doubt about the legitimacy of an email which appears to come from us, please do not click on any hyperlinks which it may contain, and do not hesitate to contact us. We are always most grateful to those who do so.
