Fraud is a criminal offence stipulated in the Penal Code; Article 246(1) of which says:

‘A person who defrauds another of property shall be punished by imprisonment with work for not more than 10 years.’

This is a rule applied in criminal proceedings. You will not be able to recover your money unless you take action in civil proceedings.

Cyber fraud

Cyber fraud (internet fraud) uses the internet to commit fraud. Cyber fraud includes business fraud, non-delivery of merchandise and investment fraud. Committing fraud online allows someone to hide their identity and location, making it difficult for the police and other law enforcement agencies to bring them to justice. In many cases, the first and the hardest part of all is to identify the offender.

In the digital age, however, it is hard for scammers not to leave any digital footprint. We use open-source intelligence (OSINT) as well as legal techniques to identify the offender. We have successful records of locating scammers and recovering money from them. As fraud cases are complex and highly technical, you need to instruct attorneys with relevant experience.
