Civil Fraud cases are complex and can have substantial effects on your business and on your personal assets. Unlike criminal fraud, civil fraud seeks recovery of the sums or assets which have been taken or of compensation or damages of the victims.
Civil Fraud is a very serious and particularised area of law and if legal proceedings of fraud are not commenced within the specified limitation period, then your fraud claim could be out of time.
