Why Should I File?
Definition of internet fraud:
A crime in which the perpetrator develops a scheme using one or more elements of the Internet to deprive a person of property or any interest, estate, or right by a false representation of a matter of fact, whether by providing misleading information or by concealment of information."
Catrina has committed fraud, and continues to with hold thousands of dollars (your dollars) in refunds. The total known amount just from the customers who post on DoA is $15,000, this number does not even include people who are not a member of the forums. When you file you are not only standing up for yourself and your rights, but you are also helping other people who are in the same situation as you. The more reports that are filed, the greater the results will be.
Which Police Department Should I File With?
Your local police. If you don't know their number you can easily find it on Google, just enter the name of the city you live in followed by "police department". So my google search would look like "Jacksonville,FL police department", when you go to your local department's home page, you should see a "non-emergency" number listed, that is the number you call to file a report. Depending on where you live you may be able to fill a report out online, or over the phone, however you may have to go directly to the station to file a report as well.
Ok, So I Filed with My Police Department, How Does That Do Anything in Ohio?Your local police will then contact the Berea, Ohio police department to follow up with your report. The Berea Police will then be able to investigate the case.
This is why every report filed matters. If the Berea Police get 20 phone calls from other police departments about the same person/business they will NOTICE.
