Our Fraud Solicitors Expertise

Mortgage Fraud

Mortgage fraud involves misrepresentations, lies, or omissions related to the property or potential borrower, used by someone to make the loan decision that would likely not be made if the truth were known. This can include inflating property values or hiding the true owner of the property.

Insurance Fraud

Insurance fraud. This can involve exaggerating claims, fabricating damages or injuries, or lying on an insurance application to achieve lower premiums.

Credit Card Fraud

This type of fraud involves unauthorized use of a credit card to make purchases or withdraw funds. It can occur through physical theft of the card, skimming devices, phishing scams, or through data breaches where credit card information is stolen.

Advanced Fee Fraud

In advanced fee fraud, victims are persuaded to pay a fee before receiving some benefit, such as a loan, a contract, investment, or gift. Often, the fraudster takes the fee without ever delivering the promised benefit.

Banking Fraud

Banking fraud covers a wide range of activities, from check fraud to unauthorized electronic transfers, aimed at illegally obtaining money, assets, or other property owned or held by a financial institution.

Charity Fraud

This type of fraud involves collecting money under the guise of a charity organization for personal gain. The scam can range from completely fictitious charities to misusing the donations of a legitimate charity.

False Accounting

False accounting is the intentional misrepresentation of financial documents, such as inflating sales or understating expenses, often to present a company as more financially robust than it actually is, to mislead stakeholders or evade taxes.

Forgery and Counterfeiting

Forgery involves the creation, alteration, or falsification of important documents or signatures with the intent to deceive, while counterfeiting typically refers to the creation of imitation products or currency.

Fraud by False Representation

This type of fraud occurs when someone makes a false statement or representation in order to gain a benefit or cause loss to another. It covers a wide range of fraudulent activities where lies or deceit are used as a means to an end.

Fraudulent Investment Schemes

Often known as Ponzi or pyramid schemes, these involve convincing individuals to invest in a non-existent or non-profitable investment with the promise of high returns, where the returns are paid from new investors’ contributions rather than profit.

Identity Fraud

Identity fraud involves using someone else’s personal information without their permission, typically to carry out financial transactions, such as opening bank accounts, obtaining loans, or making purchases.

Insider Trading

Insider trading is the illegal trading of a public company’s stock or other securities (such as bonds or stock options) by individuals with access to non-public information about the company.

Money Laundering

Money laundering is the process of making large amounts of money generated by a criminal activity, such as drug trafficking or terrorist funding, appear to be earned legitimately. It typically involves three steps: placement, layering, and integration.

Pension Fraud

Pension fraud involves illegal acts that involve the mismanagement or misuse of pension funds, affecting the retirement savings of individuals. This can range from advisors recommending unsuitable investments to outright theft of funds.
