Think ID verification is "over the top"? Think again. Another £25K lost to scammers

Here at Alpha Legal we sometimes hear of frustrations with ID verification.  People are confused about why security is so important when dealing with financial transactions and bank account details.

There are some of the comments we've heard in the last week alone:

"We didn't have to do this sort of thing years ago"

"Why do we have to send documents securely?  Won't email do?"

"Can I just tell you our bank account details over the phone?  Won't that be secure?"

This is the awful story of Amy, a 30-year-old who was targeted by sophisticated scammers who took £25K from her.  She was caught off-guard and thought she was doing the right thing, only to discover, too late, that she was being manipulated.
