Cause: Fraudulent theft of technical equipment
Our client received a request to hire some high quality video camera equipment from a previously unknown source. Prior to releasing the equipment our client had undertaken all the necessary checks and was happy to hire the items. Unfortunately, the equipment was not returned and it transpired that the hire was fraudulent and the equipment had been shipped to Pakistan.
How we helped?
Together with information provided by ourselves and the client, Police and Customs intervened and managed to stop some of the items leaving the country. Following the loss Allan Chapman & James also assisted the client with additional identification and security checks which would help reduce the possibility of a repeat incident.
