How to prevent bank account fraud and the role of our solicitors if you are a victim
08 Sep 2021

Identity thieves and hackers are common problems faced in this world of digital technology. If your bank account information is stolen then you have been subject to identity theft which can result in bank account fraud, which can ultimately disrupt all aspects of your life including personal and social relationships, overall mental and physical wellbeing, your home and your career – not just your finances.

Although banks are obligated to refund the money that you may lose as a result of a fraudulent case it is a complicated maze to navigate and it is very important that you speak to a fraud solicitor here at ABV Solicitors to make sure that you approach the system correctly and efficiently. This is to ensure that you are reimbursed  for all your losses and that it does not have any detrimental effect on your finances or credit scores with any banks or authorities, or hold any long-term implications for the future .

There are many ways in which you can try and protect yourself from bank account fraud.  Most of us deal with our finances using online banking. Whether this is for shopping, applying for a credit card, checking our credit score, sending money to others, transferring money between accounts, or looking after our mortgage, just to name a few. It is important that you monitor your bank accounts on a regular basis. Online banking is available with most banks now and is easily accessible for all. This has its advantages and disadvantages. An advantage is that you have your account details at your fingertips so you can make sure that you know what transactions are occurring on your account on a daily basis and you can detect any discrepancies and report them immediately. The disadvantages of online banking are security issues. Bank account information can be hacked and passwords are also subject to attack.
