Advanced fee fraud is a type of investment fraud where victims are required to make up-front payments for goods or services, often on the basis that substantial financial benefits will then follow. The promised benefits then fail to materialise, leaving victims considerably out of pocket. A common example is when a letter or email is sent to the victim providing an elaborate explanation as to why the fraudster requires their assistance, usually to get money out of a foreign country. This assistance requires them to provide bank details and pay a fee, however the funds promised are never transferred. If you find yourself under investigation for such activity, the Fraud Solicitors at Wilford Smith have the required skills and expertise to defend you.
