Webster defines “fraud” as follows: intentional perversion of truth in order to induce another to part with something of value or to surrender a legal right.

In this legal sense, fraud is a crime, subject to both criminal and civil prosecution, It comes in many forms, and, often, is detected too late by the victim, only after material harm has occurred.

At Nationwide Legal Investigations, we have decades of experience in resolving fraud cases. Fraud victims sometimes blame themselves for having been taken in by fraud. The reality is that there are a lot of very good liars in the world, and we always remind our fraud clients that the fault lies, not with them, but with the perpetrators. People who have been victims of fraud come to us with two very specific needs: to find the perpetrator of the fraud, and to identify any and all means of redress. Our asset searches and other financial investigations are frequently invaluable to the latter aspect of a fraud case.

Law enforcement can and does investigate fraud, but most fraud is not a high priority for overtaxed and understaffed police departments. Even when law enforcement does investigate fraud cases, their focus is inevitably upon the criminal aspects of the case, not on possible means of restitution. Victims of fraud often come away from their contact with the police feeling frustrated and without recourse.

Fraud victims do have one major recourse, however: the licensed private detective.

For a prosecutor or investigator to prove that fraud has taken place, the following five conditions must be met:

  • that facts have been misrepresented;
  • that the misrepresented facts were material to the transaction;
  • that the misrepresented facts were intended to be relied upon;
  • that the victim justifiably relied upon the misrepresentation; and
  • that material harm resulted.

In most fraud cases, a private investigator is an absolute necessity. By engaging a licensed private detective, you are bringing onto the case someone whose time is yours, someone whose only job is to undertake the investigation with you in mind. Nationwide Legal Investigations will work doggedly to discover the perpetrator, to obtain evidence that can prove the five conditions of fraud to the courts, and to identify the means for you to recover the losses suffered.
