Privileged, Lawful Access to Bank Account and Financial Data

Obtaining financial details on a subjects bank account lawfully, whilst difficult it is certainly not impossible.

Our most comprehensive report uses deep personal credit data obtained from one of the UK’s leading credit agencies. Our Level 4  Asset Search Report can yield additional detailed financial information on an individual’s bank accounts, mortgages, loans, credit cards, store cards and other utility accounts etc.

The data is used along with the expertise of our qualified investigators to uncover previously untraceable assets and liabilities and is integrated into a deeper investigation package to provide a complete assessment and provide considered recommendations.

This information is obtained lawfully, in a completely covert manner, which leaves no footprint of the search behind. In suitable cases it can be seen as a cost effective first option to negate the typical asset tracing process and can provide high value data.

Investigation Criteria

Tremark’s financial status report with personal credit data complies with all UK legislation. This report can only be obtained where (i) the subject of the enquiry is suspected of fraud or another criminal act and our client is in receipt of a crime reference number (see below) or (ii) our end client is an insolvency practitioner, who wishes to investigate a director of a company of which they are appointed as liquidator or administrator.

Obtaining a crime number

A fraud can be reported directly to the police or via Action Fraud here. Reporting a suspected fraud or crime via Action Frauds website is very simple. Upon completion of the basic report form, victims are given a crime reference number and their case is passed on to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB), which is run by the City of London’s police service.

What will NFIB do with the information you give them?

The City of London Police’s National Fraud Intelligence Bureau use the millions of reports of fraud to identify serial offenders, organised crime gangs and established and emerging crime types. In some cases, the police and other law enforcement agencies may want to contact you for further details, so it’s important that you provide your correct contact details and keep any relevant information about the crime.
The police do not investigate every report individually, the information you provide will aid them. The police use your information to build up intelligence about fraud, which includes who is committing what fraud and against whom. This contributes to making the UK a more hostile place for fraudsters to operate in and helps to keep other potential victims safe. This intelligence is helping law enforcement catch criminals and society make itself more resistant to the fraud threat.

The cost

The fee per report is £1200 plus VAT. Please note that these fees are only payable if our application on your behalf for the release of the Personal Credit Data is deemed compliant and successful.
