R v M - Acquittal in Conspiracy to Defraud Bank

Fraud Solicitor and Cybercrime Specialist Majad Habib was instructed to represent one man, of 12, accused of ​Conspiracy to Defraud involving a well known high street bank.

The Fraud was committed by an employee of the bank altering customer's security details and creating new access passwords. Substantial transfers were then made by the employee and others to transfer customers' funds into the accounts of those arrested.

After meticulous scrutinisation of the evidence, robust representations were made by our Fraud Lawyers insisting that the prosecution drop the case against our client. The prosecution was not agreeable and listed the matter for trial.

A short while before the trial, the proceedings were dropped.
