Solicitor lost £734,000 in phone scam

A solicitor has been defrauded out of £734,000 pounds of her clients' money in the latest example of a so-called vishing - or voice phishing - attack.

Three or four solicitors a week are reporting that they have had calls trying to persuade them to move money, usually belonging to their clients, into a criminal's bank account.
