Jammal email fraud
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is seeking to recover funds stolen in a suspected email fraud in 2002 by the British-Lebanese national Abdallah Ali Jammal.
In June 2023, the SFO secured provisional High Court approval to recover over £500,000 stolen from victims of the scam, trialling a new approach to victim reparation.
The SFO has identified a number of victims of the fraud and, working alongside the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, Australian Federal Police and European authorities, will seek to trace the stolen funds back to each of the known victims’ own accounts.
This notice of claim sets out the details of the SFO’s application and the account details of the funds in question. If you feel you may have a claim to these funds, please see the contact details also listed on the notice.
