Fraud can and must be fought. Remember that scammers never finish their criminal acts on their own. Therefore, the first thing you need to do if you become a victim of fraud is to prove the fact of fraud. To prove the fact of fraudulent actions on the part of the individual, identify directly the fact of a crime. To do this, recognize and explore the symptoms until the moment when they received accurate evidence of abuse of trust or deception. Law enforcement agencies will hardly believe your word, therefore you really need real evidence. To do this, use all the means at hand.
Try to write down all the possible conversations with the alleged fraudsters. Everywhere carry a recording device or a voice recorder and record all conversations. During the conversation, ask as many different questions to provoke the interviewee to explain or clarify his alleged actions, proposals and requirements.
Possible and also record phone conversations, which use special recorders or modern models of cell phones.
If possible, carry out covert filming. Not only would it be more intuitive proof, but will help to determine the identity of the fraudster and to prove his involvement in the matter.
Gather as much information on persons with whom you are communicating. Don't be afraid to ask that question. If you are denied for any reason, try not to deal with this person. However, do not relax, if they still showed. To forge documents in our time is not so difficult, therefore there is a high probability that they are false. Write down the names, known to you, phone numbers, license plates and other information.
After all information is collected, write a statement on fraud and refer them to law enforcement. Believe me - if you have enough information, the police will take your case and try to punish the cheater.
