Attention Police Officers & Leadership Concerned With Fraud
As a local police officer, you probably never considered this, but YOU CAN send a local victim’s complaint to police agencies in other countries on behalf of your local victims!
After a scam victim comes in to report a case of a cybercrime or financial fraud, and if you see that there was a nexus in a specific country, all you need to do is send an email to that country’s police. Yes, that simple! You might have to do a little investigating to find out who, and you can also send an email requesting support from your counsel general in that country, but it is not that hard! In fact, it would typically take 30 minutes to do it!
A few emails and you actually could extend the police investigation for the benefit of your local victims! And the fact is, for example in the case of Nigeria, that the EFCC will not only investigate but arrest and convict based on the evidence you can provide. Same for Ghana, and elsewhere!
Yes, there will be cases where the police on the opposite end will ask for things to pass through diplomatic channels, but at least you tried!
Even more surprising, again in the case of Nigeria, when the request has come from law enforcement, often the criminals when convicted are ordered to pay restitution to the victim!
Even if your information is very incomplete, the police agency on the other end can use this information to target a criminal and they will gather their own evidence – sometimes just a name or receiving bank account is enough. Sometimes all it takes is a phone number.
In a surprising number of cases, you can find the corresponding police officers or agency leadership right on LinkedIn – you can use that platform to connect with local law enforcement/police around the world, without the need for diplomates or bureaucracy getting in the way. Just send them the victim’s statement and any information you have and more often than not, they will make the effort to help you!
Instead of telling a victim that there is nothing you can do, make the extra effort to see if you can send the information to your corresponding police agency where the cybercriminal resides and received the money! This will make a world of difference to the victims, and you will know that you were able to make a difference regardless of the outcome! In fact, police agencies in other countries often consider it a privilege to collaborate with law enforcement in the United States and elsewhere – this is something you can leverage to help a victim bring a criminal to justice!
In some cases, yes, you will have to request that it be forwarded through the FBI (etc.) but that is just a phone call or two.
On behalf of your victims, make the extra effort! You can do this. If just one case is investigated by the agency on the opposite end and it results in a conviction then it was worth the effort.
Your victims will appreciate your extra effort! And you can close the case knowing that you passed it along to an agency that may take action!
Please do this for all of the victims in your community seeking justice!
