My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
You have to report the fraud to the HK police and Interpol.
If the police can locate the money they will deal with it you will not need to have a solicitor to act for you
Fraud is a criminal charge not a civil matter.
If you wish to sue the person for taking the money you have to show that he breached an agreement and if you were dealing with a company you have to sue the company not an individual .
But you have to first contact the police and see if they can follow up who owns the accounts and lay charges. This has to be done before you can do anything further
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
