I'm not able to make the call now. You said you did not want one.

I have explained how to get a refund

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Just want to know we’re I stand

I obviously won't know whether you will be charged or not.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
What is your professional opinion have you dealt with cases like this and is it often that they take so long with there investigation

Thank you.

Arsons are fairly common and it can quite often take a very long time to be charged. It is not necessarily anything to do with the amount of investigation in your case but the shortage of resource is overall and they cannot give you undivided attention.

Can I clarify anything for you?


Customer: replied 7 months ago.
but it doesn’t help me though not knowing have you had cases like this and what was the outcome off it

Yes. Some were charged. Some were not. Like every charge.

I'm not going to be able to tell you whether you will be charged. Like I said.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
but if they had some evidence they would have arrested me by now instead off wasting time

No. I explained that above.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Your not much help to me

Well, I did tell you at the outset that I couldn't tell you if you would be charged. No magic wands I'm afraid.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
but it’s not doing my health any good

I cannot tell you whether you will be charged and nobody can credibly tell you that you certainly will not. If that is what you are hoping for then nobody can help.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Anyway thank you for your help

No problem and all the best.
