This report on the status of the police investigation into whether Profitable Plots cheated investors shows how difficult it is to prove cheating. The police want another six months, the judge only allowed another four months. The police have been on the case since the middle of last year.
The 229 complainants should have asked questions before they invested, not shout they were cheated when they didn’t make the profits they alleged they were promised.
If the police fail to find sufficient evidence to prosecute, I hope that the 229 complainants will be liable to pay some of the investigation costs. This would deter other investors from shouting “cheating” everytime they lose money.
