Computer Fraud

The number of incidences of computer fraud has skyrocketed over the past couple of decades, with advances in technology and the number of businesses operating online dramatically increasing the opportunities available to fraudsters.

During our many years of experience in the sector, we have seen legal enquiries change from relatively simple transaction thefts to complex cases involving malware and sophisticated remote attacks. Our specialist computer fraud solicitors are malware, spyware and ActiveX manipulation literate, and they have taken on many incredibly complex cases with great success.

It is easy for people to unwittingly become accused of fraud, particularly in cases where there is a long chain of criminal activity – those at either end of a chain of fraudulent activity could have no idea of their personal involvement.

If you have been accused of committing computer fraud, we can represent you. To find out more about JMW’s services in this area, call us now on 0800 652 5559 for a confidential discussion.

Many clients we have represented are unaware of computer fraud attacks until they become the subject of an investigation and are suddenly immersed into an enquiry, so it’s absolutely vital to have experienced and knowledgeable solicitors on side as soon as possible.

Examples of common computer fraud

Computer fraud is one of the widest areas of fraud. Advances in computer technology combined with the number of firms that now have an online presence mean the opportunities available to fraudsters are almost endless.

We have worked on cases of computer fraud involving:

  • Pyramid schemes run via computer
  • Phishing emails attempting to steal personal information
  • Laptop/computer theft, theft of data
  • Computer hacking (for information gathering or to change confidential information)
  • Computer viruses, worms and malware
  • Identity theft

During our many years in the sector we have developed in-depth skills in dealing with all kinds of computer fraud. We ensure we keep ourselves up to date with the latest techniques, researching new trends in fraudster behaviour and educating ourselves on the latest malware and hacking technology.
