As ever, we will be available for any emergency tasks during the Christmas and New Year period, mostly for solicitors and local/county authorities.

We understand that there can be urgent needs and that a delay over the festive season can be detrimental to legal proceedings.

When the sun rose on 1 January 2020, none of us could have known how the year would turn out. Social distancing, lockdown, stay safe; these words have been entered our everyday speech as we have collectively tried to do our part.

The rise in fraudulent activity during the year has been more than a little worrying, as innocent victims are tricked into transferring their life's savings into bank accounts operated by fraudsters. Indeed, the increase of scams, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, led to the launch of a national campaign called 'Stop the Scams' to help the public spot signs of fraud.

As with the first Lockdown, AH Jones Investigators/Process Servers remains open and fully operational. This will continue to be our position.

We continue to provide our full range of services to ensure the judicial process continues to function effectively.

 

As before, we are still operating from our office in Exeter, Devon, and our team of investigators continue working across the UK.

'Stop the Scams' is a national campaign that has been launched by the insurance industry in response to predictions that insurance fraud will rise as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The campaign is a joint venture between the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) and the Association of British Insurers. It aims to help the public spot signs of scams and report them to the IFB's Cheatline.
