Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
In civil law, the statute of limitations is six years
pursuant to N.Y. Civ. Prac. L. & R. §213
In criminal law (if this was to be prosecuted criminally), it would depend on the amount of fraud (which would determine the misdemeanor
/felony), but is generally up to five years. I can be more specific if you provide me with a specific amount of money claimed as lost as a result of the fraud.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
If this is not what you had wished to hear, I am sorry. Please note: I aim to give you genuine
information and not necessarily to tell you only what you wish to hear. Please, rate me on the quality of my information and do not punish me for my honesty. I understand that hearing things less than optimal is not easy, and I empathize.
