How to deal with a fraud allegation with the help of a fraud solicitor
18 Jul 2022

In the Fraud Act 2006, the Crown Prosecution Service describes that a fraud crime (criminal activity for monetary gain) can be carried out in three different ways. This includes fraud by false representation, fraud by failure to disclose information where it is legally necessary to do so and fraud by abuse of position. These actions are used to carry out different types of fraud crimes. If these actions are carried out dishonestly, for financial gain or to cause loss to another, there may be a maximum sentence of up to 10 years of imprisonment whether or not the gain or loss occurs.

Speak to us at ABV Solicitors

If you have been accused of a fraud crime, it is important that you contact our fraud solicitor at ABV Solicitors immediately, regardless of whether you are guilty or not. Fraud cases can be lengthy and complicated. Without legal advice and assistance, you can be charged and convicted resulting in a devastating impact on all aspects of your life. A fraud allegation can affect your personal life and your professional life with significant losses for your future, relations and finances. By making sure that our fraud solicitor is representing your case from the very beginning, you will be able to help us achieve a positive outcome for you.

Be careful from the beginning

In the early stages of any criminal case, including a fraud allegation, it is important that you do not implicate yourself further in any way. Under pressure, the police questioning and interviews can be intense and often traumatic. In this situation, it is important that our fraud solicitor is by your side to advise you accordingly from the very beginning. We are able to provide 24-hour police station assistance, and we are available every day of the week for your service.

The police have a duty to remind you of your right to have a solicitor present, and at the time, it is essential that you remember to contact ABV Solicitors for advice and assistance. It will help calm your nerves and prepare you for the kind of questions you may face and how you should answer them or whether you should answer them at all. We will find out everything we need to know from you, and we will speak to the authorities to find out exactly what the allegations are so that we can put together a strong defence for your case.

Here at ABV Solicitors, we have extensive experience defending a wide range of fraud cases. We have been recognised by Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500 as being a leading firm in criminal law here in the UK, working to achieve the best possible outcome for complex fraud cases across the country and internationally too. You can rest assured that we will put together a strong defence for you using our knowledge and expertise, and we will ease the process for you as much as possible, making sure there are no unnecessary delays or complications in your case.
