What is the outcome of the fraud?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I spoke to Alex W. about this matter, but was nothing I could do because they are on benefits.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

You can tell the truth as publicly as you like.

The only issue here would be, in legal theory, if they dispute that your allegation is true there may be a defamation argument.

But if they are on benefits they will not be able to fund a claim anyway.

I suppose, at the highest point, there could be a harassment argument but all the police would do is tell you to take it down.

Can I clarify anything for you?

No thank you. the law seems to be on their side, and people like me who is law abiding can do nothing about it.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Generally speaking, people on benefits who are not worth suing do get away with murder in this country.
