Boiler room fraud is a particularly serious form of unlicensed share dealing which often occurs when a salesperson acts as a stockbroker and convinces investors to buy shares in companies that are worthless or near bankruptcy, and in some cases companies that do not exist at all. Those accused of boiler room fraud will in many cases be unaware of the fraudulent nature of these sales, having been recruited to their role by senior individuals who oversee these schemes. Investigations into boiler room fraud will normally be led by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which has at its disposal extensive powers to investigate and prosecute this crime. If you find yourself subject to such an investigation, the Fraud Defence Solicitors can provide the support you need to conduct the most robust defence on your behalf.
