We sold our land last year in Larnaca and our Larnaca Lawyer advised us to have the money transferred to his account, that’s the last we saw of it. He said that he had received an email which he thought was from us giving a new bank account to put the money in 🙄 needless to say nothing to do with us, does anyone know of something similar happening, and did they ever recover their money?

This firm are part of the Cypriot bar who thought the disappearance of our money by another one of their members was quite acceptable, so we won't be using them.

We went to the Cypriot bar and it seems that they are all in it together, we have never come across such a corrupt Country, possibly worse after Brexit, because they know that they can now get away with almost murder. Can you let me know the website for the expat forum please.

Just to update everybody, since our Larnaca Solicitor transferred our life's savings to someone else's account we have spent nearly 3 years going round in circles, we have now heard back from his insurance company saying that he is not insured for cyber crime, even though he personally walked to the Bank of Cyprus in Larnaca, personally filled out the paying in slip and transferred the money in person, no buttons were pushed at any time, they are hiding behind the small print because apparently he received an email which he thought was from us changing the bank details, yet never once did he check by a phone call or text, if this is not incompetence and negligence I don't  know what is, yet the Cypriot Law Society says he has done nothing wrong in their opinion.
