The Fraud Team is a UK not-for-profit company which brings together people and organisations with specialist skills to help victims of scams and frauds. We are led by Steve Conley, who has had a distinguished career at a senior level in the financial services industry. Steve is the founder-owner of The Academy of Life Planning and the award-winning founding-lead of the Market Integrity Team of the Transparency Taskforce. The following link provides a summary of the collaborative, campaigning community, and Steve’s role as an Ambassador for the Transparency Taskforce.
Steve is The Fraud Team’s leading specialist on banking-related issues.
The Fraud Team can call upon an extraordinarily strong team of independent professionals covering investigation, insolvency, asset tracing, forensic accounting and legal services. The investigation team includes former UK Police Officers, UK solicitors and a global investigation firm which handles overseas investigations. We also work closely with each of our independent specialists to co-ordinate recovery actions on behalf of our clients.
If you suspect you have been the victim of a fraud or a scam our team will investigate. We do not charge for an initial review and we do not take on cases where we feel the costs of recovery would not be economically viable for our clients. We can identify and act against third parties who may have been culpable in assisting the scam whether that occurred at the initial planning stage, during the fundraising or on an ongoing basis. If you are a financial institution or marketing platform we can work with you to identify and close scams before you incur reputational damage and potential claims.
