If you are suspected of passing off fake gold or precious metals as genuine, you need to consult an experienced Fraud Solicitor at the earliest possible stage of any investigation.
This type of fraud is considered a serious offence and the repercussions of a conviction can be significant, both for you personally and for the reputation of your business. Those found guilty may receive a custodial sentence so you need to be sure that the legal support you receive is of the highest quality. The experienced Fraud Solicitors at Wilford Smith have the required skills, knowledge and determination to ruthlessly develop a top-level strategy on your behalf, ensuring the best outcome in any case. We know how stressful it is to be subject to a criminal investigation and will ensure that you are given clear, straight-forward, jargon-free advice as part of our client-focused and highly personal service.
In addition to pursuing charges in relation to the fraud itself, prosecuting authorities will often utilise the provisions contained in the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2002 to recover profits made as a result of gold and precious metals fraud. POCA makes it a criminal offence for anyone to use any property, including money, goods or shares, which has been obtained as a result of criminal activity, with Confiscation Order applications regularly being made as a consequence.
