Sep 24, 2021

We know that scams are increasingly prevalent during the pandemic.

With a growing number of people falling victim to Ponzi schemes, corporate fraud and other nasty scams, what action can you take if you lose money?

My guests on the podcast today are Tim Carter and James Lister from Stevens & Bolton LLP.

Tim advises on all aspects of restructuring and corporate and personal insolvency, including distressed business sales. His clients range from insolvency practitioners, corporates, stakeholders and other investors to directors and individuals. He has particular expertise in matters involving insolvency litigation.

James specialises in private wealth disputes, dealing with trust, estate and succession matters within the UK and internationally. James also deals with disputes where trusts and private wealth issues are involved in wider commercial disputes, such as fraud and asset recovery.

In this episode, we discuss how HMRC is cracking down on Covid loan scheme fraud, what attracts people to Ponzi schemes and how to avoid them, steps you can take if you have been the victim of fraud, and much more.
