Have you been the victim of a theft by someone clever enough to make it
look like you willingly "loaned" or gave them money? If
you have been, the chances of the police arresting the person and the
prosecutor charging them with theft are very slim. However,
it is possible that this person has successfully pulled this ploy with
other victims and may have a criminal history or civil judgments as a
result of the scams. CUFF will research the person's
background to determine if this is the case. Previous convictions
for fraud or multiple civil judgments for alleged fraud can be used to
substantiate your claims of fraud to the police.
If the person does not have a criminal history or civil judgments, it does not
mean they have not successfully conned others. You may just be the
first victim to stand up and demand justice. CUFF will advise you how
to obtain justice through the courts, criminally or civilly. We will work with you to collect information to use in
your case and give you suggestions based on the experiences of the
victims we have worked with. Read

*We are not attorneys. Our
advice is based on the personal experiences of our members who have
attempted to prosecute someone who defrauded them. In
some cases, they were successful. When they were not successful, they used the courts to obtain justice
by filing a lawsuit against the person, obtaining a civil judgment and then going after the defendant's assets.
If you are not comfortable representing yourself in court, we recommend that you hire a competent attorney. It is
also a good idea to seek legal advice at the onset of any pro se (representing yourself) action since each
state has different statutes of limitations and court procedures. If you want to file a small claims court case
against the defendant, go to our Get
Even Legally page for an overview of how to do it.
