London firm Mischon de Reya — cool name don’t you think? — puts out a newsletter about fraud. Here is a bite from the latest one:
‘Lawyers for a woman divorcing her husband recommended computer experts who could hack into her husband’s computer and iPhone. The husband’s lawyers have been given the go ahead to appeal the divorce ruling in what could be a landmark case concerning the use of information obtained legally [sic. but should be ‘illegally’]. The Singapore High Court said that the law firm could be guilty of perjury, breach of professional ethics, and other crimes under the Computer Misuse Act.’
