What is ‘Conspiracy to Defraud’?

A conspiracy is an agreement between two or more persons to commit an unlawful act, or to commit a lawful act by unlawful means. The former applies to conspiracy to defraud; the offence does not depend on the conspirators committing the act; rather it depends upon them agreeing to carry it out. It is enough for the conspirators to know that their actions will result in the defrauding of the intended victim for this offence to have been committed.

What penalties are attached to ‘Conspiracy to Defraud’?

A conspiracy to defraud conviction has the potential to result in a custodial sentence not exceeding ten years, a fine, or both.

If you have been accused of conspiracy to defraud, it is important that you contact a fraud solicitor as soon as possible; preferably one with the knowledge and expertise to begin preparing a case in your defence.
