Dan Dodman, Partner in our Dispute Resolution team, has been published in Property Week on authorised push payment fraud.

A continuing trend, Authorised Push Payment fraud, or “APP” fraud, is rife in lockdown Britain, particularly in high reward industries like the property sector.

“Authorised Push Payment scams occur when someone is deceived into authorising a payment to an account that they believe belongs to a legitimate person or company. Most commonly, fraudsters gain access to an individual’s information and then present themselves as a company with whom the hacked account owner is already doing business.”

Key issues to consider include:

  • What is authorised push payment fraud?
  • How do I prevent authorised push payment fraud?
  • How do I make a formal complaint of authorised push payment fraud?
  • What is the Authorised Push Payment Scam Voluntary Code?
  • How can I get money back from authorised push payment fraud?

The full article can be read via Property Week.
