Report Fraud

Stop Martial Art Fraud

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
Edmund Burke

When we have been victimized and our emotions are heightened, it can be challenging to distinguish between the “feelings” of being deceived, wronged, injured or damaged and the “facts” of being deceived, wronged, injured or damaged.

While there are certainly circumstances when our feelings and the facts may be the same, it is also possible for them to be two very different sets of information.

So before you allege fraud or report fraud, take time to review Martial Art Fraud site and explore external references, then carefully consider whether or not you have the factual evidence required to legally prove fraud.

Should you determine that you can document enough facts to warrant a fraud claim, then there are a number of means for you to report your experience and seek a remedy; however, be aware that the specific manner in which you were deceived or defrauded can determine which reporting means are appropriate. Not all means are suitable for all circumstances.

For example, if you conducted a transaction with someone in person and the deception or wrong that occurred was only documented by a verbal conversation between the two of you without other evidence of the event and circumstances, then you may not have enough evidence to report anything, but even if you did have evidence, reporting it to the U.S. Postal Service Inspector would probably not be applicable.

However, if you conducted a transaction with someone by mailing them a check and the deception or wrong that occurred was that you failed to receive what you paid for, then depending on your proof of mailing said check and other circumstances, reporting the incident to the U.S. Postal Inspectors might be applicable.

Reporting entities available to you include, but are not limited to:

  1. Non legal channels
  2. Civil legal channels
  3. Criminal legal channels

In fact, non-legal and/or social channels of redress for a wrong may be faster, more rewarding and ultimately just as effective as the other channels.


 

While the matter below is not an instance of fraud it is a great example of a person seeking resolution through alternate channels, so take a moment and consider how this person handled a situation they were unable to get resolved through traditional channels.
