Serious Fraud

Meet the team

If you have been accused or charged with serious fraud it is usually as a result of a complex investigation looking into your personal or business financial records. It can range between credit card fraud and insurance fraud all the way up to complex cases of bribery and corruption.

What can you expect when you are accused of serious fraud?

A serious fraud charge can be a result of a complex investigation by HMRC, the Benefits Office or SFO (Serious Fraud Office) if it is looking into large businesses, but can also refer to an individual committing credit card fraud. In the case of individuals, you will be notified and will have the opportunity to provide evidence that may clear your name.

It might be that your bank details have been stolen in order to purchase goods or services, so it’s important to gather as much evidence as possible so you can demonstrate that you were unaware that the transactions or any other financial actions were being made.

What are the penalties for serious fraud?

The penalty for serious fraud depends on the circumstances surrounding the case and more specifically, the amount of money that is involved in the crime. The sentence usually includes repaying the stolen amount of money but can also include a heavy fine, as well as imprisonment for the guilty offender or group of offenders.
