crime unit indeed!
so, i would like to know how much needs to be stolen before this crime unit will even investigate.
some months back, an internet fraudster used my wife's debit card to purchase stuff (and, unbelievably, pay CC charge) online.
fortunately she noticed the next day, and we only ended up loosing a few hundred pounds (which insurance paid back)...
We had a name and delivery address (in london), and also believe that the culprit can easily be traced through the CC charge transaction (against their vehicle registration, foolish person!), so we called the police who told me that they 'were too busy with serious crimes' and that our case would never even be investigated by them!!
the fraudsters were traced and we had iron clad evidence, but were they even 'disturbed' by the police. they were not, and no doubt continue to rip off others with impunity.
