WARNING - Scam emails

The James Clerk Maxwell Foundation is aware that, from time to time, there are unauthorised and unsolicited emails apparently written in the name of the Foundation, which either request donations or indicate that the recipient has been selected by the Foundation to receive a substantial cash payment. The Foundation wishes to make clear that it has no connection with any such emails, which have been issued without the Foundation's knowledge, authority or involvement. Relevant law enforcement agencies have been informed. If you receive such an email please forward it to us at the address above.


The Foundation is based in James Clerk Maxwell's Birthplace at 14 India Street, Edinburgh. India Street is situated in the New Town, to the North of Queen Street and Heriot Row, a few minutes walk from Princes Street



The Foundation is grateful to Dave Henniker for permission to use the external photographs of Maxwell's Birthplace.
