Scam targeting house purchases

21 January 2016

We’ve been made aware of an ongoing scam which involves fraudsters duping solicitors, house buyers and sellers in order to divert payments to accounts under their control.

The fraudsters have been contacting both solicitors and their clients.

More information about the scam and how to avoid it has been made available by the Credit Industry Fraud Avoidance System on an information sheet and via an article on their website.
