“Complete waste of time from Inaction Fraud”

John W.
5/31/18

Several months ago I contacted Sussex Police regarding an Ebay scam and they said that they could not act because it had to be dealt with by Inaction Fraud. So I laboriously filled in the form that set out the identity of the criminal, his address, Ebay user name and other dodgy sales and current Ebay listings (selling "silver" necklaces marked with 925 that weren't silver). I have now received an email saying that they were going to forward all the details to Sussex Police. Now I used to work for the Metropolitan Police and am very used to obtaining the evidence needed for a prosecution. All that Inaction Fraud have done is to delay any investigation by months so that the criminal can move elsewher to carry on his scams. I have made a formal complaint against Inaction Fraud and suggest that others who have suffered the same treatment to do likewise. Action Fraud is totally unfit for purpose and is actually helping criminals to escape prosecution.

Answer:

The chances of any fraud resulting in a criminal conviction is 1 in 500, that came from Proffesor Marc Button,. The police are skint, not only do the fraudster get away with the monies, they statistically have a very very slim chance of getting criminally prosecuted. So every 10000 frauds reported only 20 end up with a conviction, the polices cant say " you have no chance at all" they create a illusion called " action fraud" this makes the people think " fraud" is taken seriously. Insolvency agency, companies house " good 5 billion fraud every year by abuse of the system" intelligence service, trading standards in regard to fraud by non CE devices being placed on the market. In short when you report fraud " it's pass the buck" I'm sorry to be so blunt, you can try the civil route " I know spend more money to get money back" My advice don't contact any one, thevfraud that I knew took place is in the region of 1 billion and " nothing was done"

Answer:

Forget it, try and resolve the matter yourself. Action fraud is a fraud itself. It is just a mirage set up to deceive us into thinking we can be safe. They do absolutely NOTHING!!

Answer:

It is said "citizens don't have the right to take the law into their own hands". What's the alternative? If the scroundels at action fraud will not deal with rported crimes then citizens should have the ability to deal with wrong doers themselves. You cannot have it both ways!!! It seems rioting is the only way to get grievances aired!!!

Answer:

Action Fraud is a rubber stamp. The funding going into it is a waste of our hard tax payers income. I am now on the "taking matters into my own hands" line, because without this, the fraudster can never be caught.
