Maximising recovery

Maximising recovery

By Andrew Tragardh

Civil Rights 

in Victoria (as in most states) there is no legal obligation to report fraud to police1 the Victoria Police website states (relevantly): “Police only investigate criminal matters in order to charge offenders and place evidence before a court. Civil action is the most appropriate method of recovering money”2 don’t assume expert fraud investigators will assist you. The Victoria Police Fraud & Extortion Squad only investigates reported or targeted investigations assessed as highly complex, multi-agency or involving catastrophic victim impact – most fraud investigations are, therefore, conducted by police at local police stations. Fraud investigations typically require a thorough understanding of legal and financial affairs which are beyond the limited capabilities and resources of local police. This is not a criticism of police. It is just a fact.
