Banking fraud is the overarching term used to describe a range of fraud offences in which money, property or assets belonging to banks or their clients are illegally appropriated. Examples include mortgage fraud, land banking fraud, credit card fraud and LIBOR/rate fixing. Investigations will typically be carried out by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or the police, with the City of London Police playing a particularly prominent role due to its proximity to the financial sector in the City. Investigations tend to focus on the employees of financial institutions suspected of participating in banking fraud, and in many cases will begin with internal disciplinary proceedings. From the earliest stages of any investigation, the Fraud Solicitors at Wilford Smith can advise you to ensure that your personal position is best protected.
