The stat for someone criminally prosecuted for fraud is 1 in 500 that came from Proffesor Mark Button at the university of Portsmouth
The police can't tell the public " we have not got the manpower or the expertise to tackle all this fraud" so the illusion of " action fraud" was formed
Yes they are ther to collate the information, if the police do " anything" it's passed to the cps.
Can you get money back from being defrauded, sadly the stats come up, against you to get criminal compensation there has to be a " prosecution" so it's 1 in 500
You can bring a civil case but that cost, in short if you have been defrauded get on with life.
They have taken your money and the chances of you getting " justice" is remote, they don't want to tell you that but it's the truth.
I would never ever report fraud again, HMRC, trading standards, insolvency agency, companies house, intelligence service, the police and the smokescreen in my opinion " action fraud"
The system favours the fraudsters, 1 in 500 leads to a criminal conviction, remember folk " crime does not pay" yes it does because the system is "f*****" and they know it so do HMRC civil and criminal, the police and all the others.
