Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How do you know it was been forged please?
Does the falsifying of the receipt constitute fraud?
Yes it could be fraud by false representationDo I disclose my original copy now and let his solicitor know that he is falsifying receipts?
Yes. You cant just sit on this and raise it later, as it is fraud it is better you disclose it now.Do I say nothing and ask for duplicate receipts as some of those forwarded are poor copies and then disclose that I have a copy of the original?You could do that but then when you have the receipts you need to raise the issue of fraud with the Solicitor.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Fraud is making a false representation which turns out to be false.
It wont be the Solicitors fault as I am sure they are acting on instructions.
They could argue it was a poor copy but you can get a document examiner to look at it to confirm its forged.
Does that clarify Gary?
