In recent years, the name of this office or of Piñera del Olmo SLP has occasionally been used to send emails with fraudulent content to persons who had not requested legal advice.
The usual purpose of such fraudulent emails is, amongst others, to request money to make some kind of investment in a foreign country, or to communicate an inheritance to the recipient, which requires the prior sending of money.
Such emails usually contain one or more documents attached with an apparently official format, which contain the name of Raúl Piñera del Olmo, a signature, and a number of official-looking stamps. The recipients of those emails can be of any age and reside in any country in the world. It can also be the case that such emails contain a link to another website that fraudulently uses the name of our office, and may have even copied text and/or images from the authentic website.
These emails have no relation whatsoever to this office, and must be deleted upon receipt, as they take advantage of people’s good faith for the sole purpose of illicit enrichment.
For that reason, if you receive an email purporting to come from Raúl Piñera del Olmo or any other firm member, or if you are directed to a website which purports to be Piñera del Olmo SLP website, and you have doubts or concerns about the provenance of the email or website, before taking any action please either contact the firm member you normally deal with and they will tell you whether the email came from us or whether it is our website.
