Have you got any experience regarding app developer fraud /

Customer Question

Hi there,
Have you got any experience regarding app developer fraud / seeing a programmer.
This person has breached their initial contract that was created and installed a separate section of code that was linked to our mobile advertising company under his name. The mobile ad advertising company failed to inform us that this was occurring and that a proportion of our adverts were being sent to this programmer. The company have since said that a confirmation from the owners must occur and did occur - this did not and have copies of all communication between us. We found out via one of the company's employees when they suspected something was odd about the duplicate account. We have confronted both the company and the programmer, the company is not admitting any liability and the programmer although has admitted to the fraud (we have the conversations saved) he resides in Romania.
What would be the best action.
Kind Regards,
Angus

We would like the money that has unlawfully been sent to this programmer paid to us.

We want to know the best way as to how we go about this. Due to the programmers residence in Romania will this be a problem. Is it worth pursuing the Ad agency for distributing the money in the first place.
