Cyber crime

Computer and internet fraud has been on the increase in recent years and has become evermore sophisticated. The prosecuting authorities now have dedicated teams trying to detect crimes of this nature. The main issue is identity fraud and the diversion of funds. Using scams such as ‘phishing’ and other ‘spam’ content in order to obtain personal details to carry out the fraud.

Almost every fraud case these days has some element of computer based evidence. This could be tracing the funds of money laundering through internet banking transactions or even the simple analysis of the data retrieved from any computers or phones seized. With the more frequent use of technology such as iPhones and the Blackberry, phones are increasing a source of retrieving information and potential evidence. This could of course include complex evidence to track a person’s whereabouts.

Facing fraud allegations

If you are suspected of a fraud of this kind the allegations against you can be complex and difficult to understand, particularly if you strenuously deny involvement and don’t have the knowledge that is alleged. Due to the very nature of the internet many cases will have a significant international element and this could lead to complicated jurisdictional issues. In turn this could lead to complex evidence through channels such as Letters of Request and Mutual assistance. There is also the possibility of complex extradition proceedings.

In order to deal with these issues it is essential to ensure your legal team has the requisite experience. At Stephensons our team has a wealth of experience in dealing with such cases. We have links to expert witnesses able to assist in the detailed forensic analysis of computer based evidence. This ensures that our legal expertise is backed up by technical expertise.
