URGENT NEWS – email scam 25 November 2014

Please note that we have again been receiving e-mails and enquiries from across the globe in relation to a scam that our IT consultants advise emanates from China. It would appear that e-mails have been sent to multiple recipients using a corruption of our e-mail address. The recipients are advised that they may be beneficiaries in an estate that is being handled by Martin Campbell. Please note that this is a scam. Do not reply or engage with the sender. You can see from our website and face book that the message does not come from our site.

Please also note that our system has not been corrupted. The recipients are not clients of this office. There has been no compromise of our security or client base.

Unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do about this. The e-mail does not come from this firm. It is an attempt to try to entice recipients to divulge personal information. Please do not comply with any request.

Long Distance II (Poem of the Week) 28 August 2014

Our poem of the week is by Tony Harrison and is a poignant piece on loss and love.

Though my mother was already two years dead
Dad kept her slippers warming by the gas,
put hot water bottles her side of the bed
and still went to renew her transport pass.

You couldn’t just drop in. You had to phone.
He’d put you off an hour to give him time
to clear away her things and look alone
as though his still raw love were such a crime.

He couldn’t risk my blight of disbelief
though sure that very soon he’d hear her key
scrape in the rusted lock and end his grief.
He knew she’d just popped out to get the tea.

I believe life ends with death, and that is all.
You haven’t both gone shopping; just the same,
in my new black leather phone book there’s your name
and the disconnected number I still call.

Defamation but no redress!

American lawyers have long been the butt of dinner party jokes, and suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous late-night comedy routines. However, the most grievous wrong inflicted upon them came from a man who is beyond the reach of a libel action.

“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers,” wrote Shakespeare in Henry VI Part 2. That murderous line, uttered by a character named Dick the Butcher, the henchman of the rebel leader Jack Cade, now…. (click below for full article)
