Warning: The website "www hangolaw.co.uk" and "Hango LLP"
22 May 2020
The website "www hangolaw.co.uk" is operating, falsely claiming to be the website for a firm of solicitors called "Hango LLP"
What is the scam?
The SRA has been informed that the website "www. hangolaw.co.uk" is operating, which falsely claims to be the website for a firm of solicitors called "Hango LLP" in London.
The SRA does not authorise or regulate a firm of solicitors called "Hango LLP".
The website provides a telephone number of "+44 (0) 203 769 1850 " an email address of firstname.lastname@example.org
and a postal address of "19 Mirabel Road Fulham London SW6 7EG".
The SRA has been informed that a member of the public has received emails, including various identity documents, from an individual called "Alex Hango" claiming to be an "Attorney with Hango LLP". The emails relate to a supposedly unclaimed inheritance of an unknown individual. The last name of the deceased is tailored to match the last name of the recipient of the emails.
Any business or transactions through the website "www. hangolaw.co.uk" or the telephone number and email address set out above, are not undertaken by a solicitor's practice or by an individual authorised and regulated by the SRA.
What should I do?
When a firm's or individual's identity has been copied exactly (or cloned), due diligence is necessary. If you receive correspondence claiming to be from the above firm(s) or individual(s), or information of a similar nature to that described, you should conduct your own due diligence by checking the authenticity of the correspondence by contacting the law firm directly by reliable and established means. You can contact the SRA to find out if individuals or firms are regulated and authorised by the SRA and verify an individual's or firm's practising details. Other verification methods, such as checking public records (e.g. telephone directories and company records) may be required in other circumstances.
The content of the website is stolen from the same UK law office as above.
