R v SR - £3 Million Fraud By Accounts Junior
Our Fraud Solicitors were instructed to represent an accounts junior alleged of stealing more than £3 million from his employer.
The prosecution alleged that over a period of 3 years, our client and two others from the Fraud department of a multi-national corporation, created false invoices and diverted funds to their personal accounts.
Upon discovery, our client’s bank accounts were immediately frozen using civil Freezing Orders. More than £1 million was recovered and Fraud Lawyers assisted the client with the criminal and the civil proceedings.
Remarkably, the Fraud Solicitors persuaded the prosecution not to instigate Confiscation Proceedings which would have resulted in the defendant losing his family home, children's savings and additional imprisonment.
