Fraud & Financial Crime
Ashmans Solicitors offer several fraud and financial crime defence services, also covering charity fraud. This type of crime involves the unlawful appropriation of funds obtained through charitable donations.
Someone commits a charity fraud when
- they mislead members of the public into thinking they are raising funds on behalf of a bogus charity
- they actually work for a charity, but the charitable donations they have raised have not been used for their intended purposes.
When you work for a charity you are in a position of trust and if you are accused of fraud, you will be upset and worried too.
You probably don’t know who to talk to or where to turn, but we can help you deal with these accusations and work with you to get the best outcome in the circumstances.
Some of the accusations you might face are:
- Misappropriation of funds
- Diversion of funds for inappropriate use
These are serious allegations, therefore you need to help from an experienced and specialist Criminal Fraud Defence solicitor and Ashmans Solicitors can provide you with this help.
