So I am clear how many months have the tenant stayed in the property?
You appear to have a couple of options - either take legal action against the tenants for them to leave the property (after serving a correct notice); and then seek the money owed to you as set out in the terms of the contract; or seek the money directly from the agents who may be in breach of their contract with you - particularly if they have been renting the property for considerably less than their agreement with you.

I am not convinced that the police will consider this to be fraud - I think that they will consider this to be part of negotiations over a civil matter - it is not deception after all. I think that it needs to be made clear to the tenant that this is not something which you will agree to and then you will need to take them through the process of having them evicted. The agents will be potentially liable (check terms of your agreement with them) for any losses that you may suffer.
