Do you have a name and address for the person who has the bikes?
Ok so yes, you will want to firstly contact the police as this seems to be a fraud. You can also raise a court action against them to get the money back if they are not willing to pay it. You may want to give them notice of this before you raise legal action to give them the opportunity to pay it back. However, if you need to take them to court then search for the Scottish law society and you will find a tab on there to find a local solicitor. If you require to take them to court then you can also make an application to get any sums back which you (or your employer) has had to pay out in doing so. So you could make a claim for the £6000.00 plus costs. So the answer to your question is to do both. If they do not state they are going to pay the money back then you can look at legal action to get it back.
I hope this information has helped.
