I want to hire a Private Attorney specialised in e-crime. The hacker kept a track on my company email flow - and intercepted the suppliers bank information and substituted his own Account Number and Iban Number leaving the beneficiary name. We did not get the real email from supplier but only the email from the hacker. We made the transfer and the money has vanised - as per National Westminster Bank-UK.
We feel there was a negligence on the part of the bank to pay the amount into an account which is not the beneficiary's account and want to hold them responsible.
We need to hire the services of a Private Attoryney who is specialised in such e-crime fraud.
I am not getting any satisfactory response from you to my email. What other information you need. I have lost approx GBP27,000 on UK transfer and Euro 17,000 on Italy transfer.
I need positive response - what is my next step for recovery of funds.
The beneficiary name was correct. Don't bank have responsibility to check that the account number was wrong. Maybe sometimes one can make a mistake with a digit or so. How can a bank have a system where the hacker has found a loophole to get funds transferred to his account even though the beneficiary name is ***** ***** of a Company who has account in the same bank but different branch.
How does hacker open an account with the bank without any credentials to check who he is. How does money go into his account and vanishes.
How can I get hold of information of the account holder who has swindled us. Is bank responsible to provide this information.
Thanks so far.
why did I get another charge today for GBP66/-. I had not authorised for this.
Please advise and refund this charge.
