Attempted scam using Allen & Overy name

There are currently two scams being conducted utilising the Allen & Overy name.

One is a telephone scam that originated in October 2012. This involves people purporting to be from Allen & Overy contacting members of the public to advise them that they are the subject of litigation from a loans company and may be subject to arrest or other action if they do not pay.

The other has appeared more recently and is an email scam using a bogus Linkedin account purporting to have been created by one of the firm’s partners. The emails originating from this Linkedin account concern a request for assistance in the handling of a divorce settlement.

These calls/emails are in no way connected with Allen & Overy and should be reported to the police immediately.
