By their very nature, criminal cases involving fraud of any kind can be highly complex, physically and mentally draining and of course extremely damaging. In the worst-case scenarios, those found guilty of major fraud in a criminal court can expect to receive hefty financial punishments often accompanied by lengthy jail sentences. If you’ve been accused of such an offence, it’s imperative that you engage the services of experienced specialists such as those at MML Law.

Fraud is a crime that covers a wide range of actions, but at its heart it remains a case of taking something that wasn’t yours, usually by some form of deception or falsehood. Proving the guilt of an individual or a group of people can take a very long time, leaving the accused in a highly unpleasant state of limbo. At times like these, stress levels can become and remain very high. That’s why you need effective representation, practical guidance and a skilled hand at the tiller.

Your specific case will depend on the type of fraud that’s being investigated. It can be one or more of the following, for example:

  • Pension fraud
  • HMRC investigations
  • Copyright fraud
  • Internet fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • FCA-led investigations
  • Business fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Benefit fraud
  • Fraudulent trading

… and more. The complexities of a particular case can often differ greatly from one example to the next. Those bringing the accusations can include individuals, companies, charities, local authorities, representative bodies, financial institutions and others.

Despite the general complexity of any given case, the bottom line of the whole process usually relates to whether or not you deliberately acted fraudulently in order to affect a particular outcome. In the majority of fraud cases, that outcome relates to the acquisition of a financial gain, but of course there are instances in which money is not directly involved.

With help from the right team of legal specialists, it’s possible to have the charges removed altogether, or perhaps have them reduced in severity. In our experience, we’ve seen many cases in which fraud has been proven to have occurred, but it’s not clear who has actually been ultimately responsible for it.
