The Fraud Act 2006 was introduced to clarify the law and make it easier to bring prosecutions for fraudulent activity of all kinds. The demand for fraud defence specialists has never been greater.
The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 also plays an important role as prosecutors seek confiscation of ill gotten gains. The powers to recover monies and assets are extensive, and subsequent case law has largely supported a draconian approach by prosecutors and the courts.
The scope for fraud in a business context is immense and wide-ranging. Rapid developments in technology in recent years have also provided a fresh outlet for fraudsters. Prosecutors are using the Fraud Act in respect of the increasing number of alleged frauds taking place across all business areas.
