I previously relayed Gideon's success at tackling a fraudster to secure his money back. Luckily he was 'in the know' to utilise the Court system to act quickly and freeze the fraudster's bank accounts. 

Here Gideon gives a step by step breakdown on how he did it. These steps demonstrate a victim can take action. Whilst taking advice and going to court can incur fees this may be small in comparison to what has been lost. In any event Gideon is right always act fast. Know your options quickly to decide on the path to take before your money has leapfrogged.

Don't just report it, own it and turn the tables on the fraudsters.
