SCARS™ Support: U.K. Victims Compensation

Did You Know That Crime Victims In The U.K. Can Apply For Compensation For Being The Victim?

OF COURSE, YOU HAD TO REPORT IT TO THE POLICE

What service the police provide to you is set by the Victims Code of Practice. Under this code you have specific rights, which include;

  • The right to be kept informed about the progress of your case by the police.
  • The right to hear when a suspect is arrested, charged, bailed or sentenced.
  • The right to apply for compensation.
  • The right to make a Victim Personal Statement to explain the impact of the crime.
  • The right to apply for extra help when giving evidence in court if you are vulnerable.
  • The right to be told when an offender will be released.
  • The right to information about taking part in restorative justice schemes.
  • The right to be referred to victims’ support services.

If you feel that your rights under the Code have not been met, then you can complain directly to the police concerned.

If you’ve been the victim of a crime that’s left you injured, or with lost or damaged property, you can apply for compensation. Depending on the crime, there are two different ways you can seek compensation.

Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme

If you’ve been physically or mentally injured by a violent crime you can apply for compensation under the UK government’s criminal injuries compensation scheme. This type of compensation can be awarded whether the offender has been caught or not.

Find out more and apply online.

Court-Awarded Compensation

If an offender is convicted of a crime against you, the court may order them to pay you compensation. This could be for a range of reasons, such as:

  • personal injury
  • pain and suffering
  • losses from theft or damage to property
  • losses from fraud
  • losses from time off work
  • medical expenses
  • travel expenses

To find out about court-awarded compensation, please contact the officer in charge of your case. They’ll give you more information and make the application for you.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. U.S. State Police (if you live in the U.S.) – they will take the matter more seriously and provide you with more help than local police
  3. Your National Police or FBI « www.IC3.gov »
  4. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network on « www.Anyscam.com »

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.

      Recovering money from scammers is almost impossible. Your only choice now is to recover your peace of mind and focus on yourself.
