Although large frauds may be reported to law enforcement agencies, smaller frauds are often not reported.
This failure to report fraud incidents and the reluctance of police to aggressively tackle the issue only empowers the perps and diminishes the victims. Ultimately, these unreported incidents are precursors to larger and larger acts of violence. If we do not deal with simple crimes, we will eventually have to deal with homicide.
