Investment Fraud - Ponzi/Pyramid Fraud


Duncan Lewis Fraud Solicitors – Investment Fraud – Ponzi and Pyramid Fraud


Investigations into Ponzi and Pyramid schemes can be lengthy and cause immense distress and loss of reputation to anyone who is facing allegations or charges involving operating a Ponzi or Pyramid investment scam.


It is vital to seek expert legal advice from a specialist financial fraud solicitor with experience in Ponzi or Pyramid investigations, in order to build a robust defence at any early stage and prevent any errors or misjudgements which might occur during an investigation which may prejudice the outcome for a suspect or defendant at a late stage.


Duncan Lewis fraud solicitors can advise clients facing allegations of operating a Ponzi or Pyramid scam even before a charge has been brought.


Our fraud department regularly represents clients at police stations in Ponzi/Pyramid fraud cases and our fraud team is available 24/7 to advise on fraud charges involving investment fraud or financial fraud.


We can also liaise with agencies which may be involved in an investment fraud investigation, including:


  • City of London Police
  • Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
  • Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)
  • Federation Against Copyright Theft
  • Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
  • HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
  • National Crime Agency (NCA)
  • Office of Fair Trading (OFT)
  • Serious Fraud Office (SFO)
  • Trading Standards


Our team can also advise suspects or defendants in Ponzi/Pyramid fraud cases on Confiscation Orders under Section 2 of the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) as well as civil asset recovery proceedings under Section 5 of POCA.
