When an individual finds that they have become a victim of a fraudulent act or a scam there is embarrassment and shame and often significant loss.

All too often the victim decides not to inform the police. There are very good reasons to keep the police in the loop.

    Hi there, I have reported a fraud done to me and my business to the police at the 30 Division on Walker’s Line in Burlington, and they never followed up. They have never replied to my many phone calls ignoring me. Is this the protection we have to expect from our city police? I demand justice!
