Duncan Lewis Litigation Solicitors – Fraud
Banking litigation can often involve disputing losses on a bank account as a result of banking fraud, including monies stolen from a bank account as a result of unauthorised payments, fraudulent cheques, cyber crime and banking scams.
Banks must put in place mechanisms to protect their customers against fraudulent activity on accounts – but when banking fraud occurs and a customer faces a loss, a bank may try to defend a claim for compensation or financial redress, leaving the customer out-of-pocket and sometimes in serious financial difficulty.
Customers who have fallen prey to banking scams can lose thousands of pounds – and in these cases, Duncan Lewis banking litigation solicitors can examine the fine detail of any banking agreement to establish liability for the loss and whether a claim for banking fraud can be made against a bank.
The main types of banking fraud Duncan Lewis can advise on include:
- Account takeovers
- Bank account fraud
- Bank card fraud
- Cheque fraud/Counterfeit cheque fraud
- Cyber crime bank fraud
- False accounting
- ID theft
- Money laundering
