Authorities are investigating allegations that a person targeted at least eight female professionals including a lawyer as part of a harassment campaign, RollOnFriday understands.
Last week a person calling themselves 'Mrs X' emailed the colleagues of several women in different businesses, it is alleged, claiming to be the wife of a senior employee and accusing the victims of conducting an affair with their husband.
A least one of the emails, which referred to a K&L Gates trainee, was leaked and circulated in the local market. But RollOnFriday has learned that it is being viewed by K&L Gates as a hoax.
A source who claimed to have knowledge of the harassment campaign said that 'Mrs X' targeted the eight women, who are not all lawyers, over the course of the same weekend.
He provided RollOnFriday with examples of two other emails which the perpetrator allegedly sent to different companies, in which similar language was used.
Motive: unknown, but definitely weird and bad.
K&L Gates confirmed that it believed the poison pen email smearing its trainee was a hoax and part of a harassment campaign, and said the police had been contacted.
"We have found no basis for the allegations concerning individuals at our Firm", said a K&L Gates spokesman, "and believe the email was a malicious hoax. We understand the matter has been brought to the attention of the police and have no further comment".
