(FIVE HUNDRED MILLION POUNDS)
We know at least this amount is stolen each year through misleading or fraudulent investment offerings.
It is estimated that the true figure is likely to run into billions as most people do not report their losses.
Research indicates that in some instances profits generated from investment fraud helps to fund-:
Human Sex Trafficking
Large scale drug dealing
High level bribery and corruption
We all must do everything in our power to prevent investment fraud.
We aim to recover the maximum amount of money possible where an investment fraud has already taken place.
In many cases the directors of these firms may not be the main culprits behind the scams.
Additional so-called 'recovery room' scams are perpetrated by the same culprits.
Without the banks supporting them these culprits would not prosper.
We provide in-depth risk reports to protect our private clients.
We pursue culprits and recover money.
We investigate , track down and disrupt all culprits we identify.
We will hold to account all enablers including-:
accountancy firms, banks, law firms and government departments.
