There have been an increasing number of civil fraud cases dealt with by the Dispute Resolution Solicitors at Forbes recently. When someone discovers that they have been a victim of fraud they may call the police but initiating criminal proceedings will not get the party defrauded their money back in the short term.
It is necessary to act very quickly to locate the money and prevent it being dissipated and the civil Courts are able to grant Search and Seize orders and / or Freezing orders for these purposes. Our Solicitors can help clients to deal with these orders. Following the obtaining of such orders there may be ongoing civil proceedings claiming damages and we can also assist with those claims.
Insurance Companies have been vigilant in taking legal action to recover money paid in alleged fraudulent claims and our Dispute Resolution Solicitors have advised in a number of such cases.
We have also been consulted in a number of identity fraud cases. There have been cases where unknown third parties have registered client's land in their own name; where loans have been applied for in our client's name and where bank details have been stolen and used.

Thank you for what you have done for us, it has been a pleasure working with you - and your advice is always clear, practical and makes lots of sense.
The letter of summary has helped me to compile my defence. Without it, I would have floundered. I am very pleased with the professional service that I have received from Mohassan and Manisha.
I have to say that I've never had a better legal service from anyone and am very grateful for your actions in bringing this to a satisfactory conclusion.
