I have been defrauded two years ago for the sum of £18,000. The Essex police arrested him for this and other frauds with other victims. However the police later dropped the case "On advice from the DPP" I have since contacted the DPP who informed me they knew nothing of the case and have passed me on to various other departments without ant result to date. In order to secure some redress, I thought I may use the small claims court to try to get back at least £10, 000.
Yes sorry I mean the CPS. I agree that it is unlikely that they weren't contacted, hence their investigation.
Any idea of the cost of taking an action if I sue though the civil court, I am trying to discover if it would be worthwhile.
