Fraudulent Fund

Post  NoStone on Fri 21 Oct - 14:38

Forgive me if this has been discussed previously.

If a fund was set up - say in this country - not a charity but a private fund - and the organisers of that fund touted for and got substantial contributions from other countries - say USA; Australia; Portugal - wherever...

If that fund was proven to be fraudulent, would the organisers also face fraud charges in the countries where funds had been raised (and touted) and not just in the country where the fund was registered? Sorry - I hope I've explained the scenario adequately.

I would imagine they could be prosecuted only if they were aware that the fund was fraudulent whilst they were actively asking for funds. That would be very hard to prove.

I would guess anyone committing a fraud in any country would be subject to the full force of the law in each of those countries, once found out offcourse.
In the case of the mccanns that wouldnt be difficult to prove once found guilty of the primary crime.
