Boiler Room Fraud

Written 4th November 2013 by Olliers Solicitors

Olliers experience of defending boiler room fraud offences dates back many years. The firm’s reputation for committed and rigorous defence work means that we attract some of the most complex fraud cases in the country.

Boiler room fraud tends to operate from overseas in countries such as Spain, United States, Switzerland or the Middle East, meaning that they are outside control of the Financial Services Authority and the regulation of share dealing under the Financial Services and Market Act 2000.

The operation is alleged to involve the selling of worthless or low value shares. Potential investors are often cold called from overseas and made the subject of highly sophisticated and persuasive sales pitches.

Often individuals accused of this kind of fraud are to some extent victims themselves because they have been recruited not knowing that they are a party to a fraud, in other words they are unwitting players in the boiler room scam.
