I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge on how the court systen works?
A few weeks ago, I got scammed using kajiji. Yes - huge lesson learned.
I filed a police report (they seemed generally disinterested) & someone else who got scammed by the same person online posted a warning of this person on the same site.
Eventually, I got notification that he has been recently arrested (YEAH!!!) and my case has been given to yet another police officer... and he is now on vacation so... wait n see I guess (I have very little faith in our legal system..)
So now what? He has already been charged for 21 counts of fraud < 5000 and 10 >5000 & was released from jail in October. Now additional charges will LIKELY be laid, and he's I hope in jail right now.. but what are my rights? How likely is it that I"ll see that money ever again? Can I be notified if he gets released from jail?
If he blew the money - is that it? Gone forever - and aside from jail time, he doesn't get much more ?
