Online scams can have a severe impact on an individual’s life. They can result in financial loss and humiliation. Scammers can use all types of methods to scam you such as email, online ads, pop ups and search results to trick you into sending them money and personal information. Many people are victims to these scams and unfortunately, due to the ever expanding web, these scams are becoming all the more common.
The five most common types of online scams are:
- Computer viruses;
- Online shopping;
- Fake websites;
- Relationship scams; and
- Health scams.
We are also experienced in defending clients who have been accused of operating as scam solicitors. This is where a person pretends to be a solicitor, or is representing a firm of solicitors. In the event that you have been accused of this offence, we understand this can have severe repercussions for your reputation. If your reputation is threatened, we can advise you accordingly.
If you are involved in internet scams, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. We appreciate that this may be a very difficult and stressful time and we can assure you that we will make this process run as smooth as possible. At Bloomsbury Law, we understand that no case is the same. This is why we work on a bespoke level to provide you with the best service possible. If you are seeking legal advice, call one of our specialists, we will listen to your situation, answer any enquiries that you may have, and advise you accordingly once we are instructed.
Recent changes to Legal Aid have meant that funding is now very limited for criminal cases, we do not feel that it is possible to represent clients to the standard that we would think is necessary and therefore, we do not therefore offer Legal Aid.
