Fraud & Financial Crime
Ashmans Solicitors offers legal aid for fraud and financial crime cases involving pension fraud.
Pension fraud is where someone agrees to have their pension released at the ages of 55, but they are not warned about the serious tax implications of doing this and will also be charged fees of up to 20% of the value of the pension to do so.
This type of crime is usually committed by
- Contacting a potential victim in person, via text message, over the phone etc.
- Claiming that the victim can access their pension before the age of 55
- Offer investment opportunities of the payment of upfront cash amounts
Pension Liberation Fraud is a relatively new type of fraud. If you have been charged with this offence, you will be feeling stressed and worried about what the future holds for you, but we can help you to be clear about what these charges mean for you and what the next steps are for you.
