Fraud & Financial Crime
Fraudulent Investment Schemes
Ashmans Solicitors provides defence for fraudulent investment schemes cases, which fall under the banner of fraud and financial crime. There are many different schemes which you may be accused of running and you may be faced with charges for running investments such as:
- Share sales – this type of fraud usually happens when the victim gets tempted into investing their own money in worthless (or bogus) stock and shares
- Wine investments – when the victim is lured into making supposedly huge financial gains thanks to low-risk investments in the lucrative world of fine wine trading
- Land banking – investors are led to believe they are investing in land that ideally will increase in value but either has little/no development potential or does not even exist
- Pension liberation schemes – the victims are led into thinking they can access their pension benefits before the age of 55 by transferring them to an unregulated scheme
- Ponzi Schemes – “get rich quick” scams in which older investors get paid by using funds obtained from more recent investors rather than an actual investment scheme (which often does not exist)
These are only examples of a only a few of the many different types of fraudulent investment schemes, you may have been charged with others.
