Global wealth manager UBS is the latest company to engage the services of Lawyer Checker in a bid to fight the criminal conveyancers.

With a 150-year heritage in wealth and asset management, UBS has registered with risk and compliance provider Lawyer Checker in a bid to minimise the risk of vendor conveyancer fraud on transactions when sending mortgage funds to law firms. An international brand, UBS places the utmost importance on ensuring the protection of client money is at the top of its client service agenda.

Cyber-crime is prolific now; UBS recognise this and through the use of the Lawyer Checker system, it has an additional resource with which to mitigate the risk of losing client mortgage funds to fraudsters.

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
