What are the different types of Financial Fraud?

An initial investigation may begin with a police search of your home and workplace, potentially leading to materials being seized, accounts and assets frozen and ultimately an arrest. Therefore, the earlier legal advice is sought, the quicker cases can be brought under control.

Financial crime covers:

  • Money laundering
  • Fraud
  • Corruption
  • Embezzlement
  • Serious Fraud Office (SFO) Prosecutions
  • Bribery
  • HMRC tax investigations
  • Director(s) disqualification
  • Extradition
  • Disciplinary and regulatory issues

Cases will be heard by the Crown Court and sentences will be decided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the severity attributed to the financial fraud activity cited and the financial implications. It can range from a fine in proportion to the fraudulent activity or for more serious cases: imprisonment.

What to do if you are accused of Financial Fraud?

The intensity of time and resource likely to be involved in any financial fraud case will undoubtedly take its toll on your professional and personal life.
