Freezing orders in fraud cases

A freezing order is a very powerful Court injunction which prevents a person or company from removing, transferring or hiding assets which might otherwise be made available to satisfy a future judgment made against them. They operate in civil (rather than criminal) cases. So if you are a victim of a fraud, remember this: without a freezing order in place, there is a real risk the fraudster will deliberately move or get rid of their assets to deliberately frustrate you enforcing a future judgment against them.
