Online Fraud & Identity Theft

Online Fraud and Identity Theft is the term whereby personal data from individuals, such as address, date of birth or bank account details are used.

These details can be obtained using a number of different methods, from the complex to the simple, such as an email address or through social media. This information can then be exploited online to open bank accounts, purchase goods or make applications for credit.

Being suspected of this kind of fraud, can be difficult to understand. It can be overwhelming due to the complexity and volume of the material the prosecution may have.

If there is money involved in the fraud, such as internet based transactions, then the prosecution may look into additional charges such as money laundering.

At EBR Attridge we understand how distressing it is to have your personal details used and your identity mis-represented.

We have very close relationships with specialist Barristers and experts who defend and prosecute Fraud Offences cases on a regular basis. Expertise and specialism are fundamental in a fraud case, as the law is complex and there have been advances in the technology involved.

If you are being investigated or prosecuted, please make an appointment to see a Online Fraud and Identity Theft Solicitor who can attend upon you by telephone, face-to-face or online.
