If you suspect that you are, or have been, a victim of banking, email or internet fraud, the time to act is the most important element. The first approach is of upmost importance, a police report is to be filled at the Hong Kong Police Force, the report needs to be filled instant as the crime is discovered. If the report is filled in time there is a high possibility that the fraudster’s bank account can be seized and the funds frozen.
To file a Police report in Hong Kong, this can only be done in person at the police station or by the E-Crime service. The Police will first need to be satisfied that a crime is actually committed, this is done by the examination of evidence and the evidence of a crime. If sufficient evidence is presented the Police will take action. Digitpol can assist with compiling further evidence into a report to assist the investigation and ensure the case receives the right attention.
Digitpol can assist foreign firms and local by providing on the spot support and the collection of evidence, if and when possible, Digitpol in cooperation with the Police can investigate further. Digitpol can engage a legal partner to act on behalf of victims when the recovery of losses becomes a civil matter.
