Fraud Victims at Risk of Arrest
READ THE INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE COMPLETING THE REQUEST FOR HELP FORM.
Most fraud victims who believe they are at risk of arrest are not really at risk of arrest at all.
Here are the main conditions that place you at risk of arrest:
To be on the safe side, we urge you to read Know Your Miranda Rights and How to Use Them.
You may be at risk of arrest if you have been questioned by a security officer or enforcement officer, but it depends on what happened that caused the questioning.
Being handcuffed at a store does not always mean you are in trouble. Law enforcement may use handcuffs as a containment device until the situation is clear, then remove the handcuffs and send you on your way with no further consequences.
The same is true of a phone call from a police officer or federal law enforcement. Sometimes they just need a few answers to figure out who the real bad guy is.
Threats from credit unions, banks, and store owners/managers do not mean you will be arrested. Because you presented a counterfeit, stolen, and/or forged document, the threats are not considered to be empty threats, which would violate your Debtor's Rights. The threats are a ploy to scare you into paying what you owe and as long as an agreement can be reached, the creditor usually backs down. Return to the Solution Center Menu and find your situation for what to do and how to do it.
Scammers will also threaten you with contacting the FBI, the Secret Service, and Scotland Yard (Scotland Yard, or New Scotland Yard is actually the Metropolitan Police in London).
These threats can be totally ignored. They are completely meaningless and are only meant to scare you into sending them more money (see Threats From Scammers). None of those agencies has any interest in prosecuting scam victims and will not even open an investigation for less than $100,000 to $500,000 in losses (depending on the field office) or in the case of the Met Police, ₤75,000.
If you owe money to a bank, credit union, or store because of the counterfeit, stolen, and/or forged drafts you have been sent by a scammer, please return to the Solution Center menu and select the link that best describes your situation.
There you will find many, many solutions and will be given the link to the proper request for help form if your situation cannot be resolved by the solutions we propose.
If you still feel you are at risk of arrest, please complete the request for help form HERE.
