Be On Your Guard Against Fraud | HK News

We’ve got your back; helping you to protect your assets from fraud

| Published on May 14, 2020

As I’m sure many of you are aware, scammers are capitalising on the current situation to increase their fraudulent activities.

Recently, one of our clients fell victim to a scam and had a significant amount of money withdrawn from their bank. The scammers sent funds from our client’s bank account to HK and then tried to persuade us to repay those monies to a different bank account. Thankfully, our robust procedures and specially trained team lead to us realise that the payments were not genuine.

Of all the recipients the scammers sent money to, we were the only organisation that noticed the activity was dubious. I am glad that we were able to alert our client and help prevent further losses. Needless to say, our client is very grateful to us for our vigilance.

As a business, protecting our clients’ personal and business interests is at the heart of what we do. Please be on your guard in these difficult times and treat anything unusual or different as suspicious until proved otherwise.

If you want to learn more about protecting you and your business from fraud, Victoria Pearson who is a specialist litigator can be contacted at our Dorchester Office on 01305 251007 or vjp@hklaw.uk.vjp@hklaw.uk.
