Hello, if someone (an employer) filed a report against someone for benefit fraud, how quickly would the police contact that individual? Someone I know admitted to benefit fraud 3 weeks ago, repaid the funds. The insurer said that they were not pursuing legal charges and the employer hadn’t informed them that they were pursuing criminal charges either. How long should this person worry about the police contacting them?
