How PROCAP DETECTIVE can help you

We seek and build the evidence of Escroquerie so that you can take legal action and effectively defend your interests

Article 313-1 of the Penal Code defines fraud as "the fact, either by the use of a false name or a false quality, or by the abuse of a true quality, or by the use of fraudulent practices, of deceiving a natural or legal person and thus determining, to his prejudice or to the prejudice of a third party, to remit funds, values or any property, to provide a service or to consent to an act of obligation or discharge." The penalties incurred are 5 years imprisonment and 375,000 euros fine, increased to 7 years imprisonment and 750,000 euros if the author is a depositary of the public authority or in charge of public service, or when the offence is committed to the prejudice of a person whose particular vulnerability, due to his age, illness, infirmity, physical or mental impairment or a state of pregnancy, is apparent or known to its author. The penalties are increased to ten years imprisonment and a fine of 1,000,000 euros when the scam is committed in organized gangs. Other additional penalties may also be added.


According to figures from the Ministries of the Interior, the number of victims of scams and similar offences is constantly increasing every year. This increase is related to facilitating factors, such as the increasing digitization of the means of communication, on the one hand, but also to the sophistication of scam techniques on the other.


Fraud is a serious offence, very often sophisticated; its human and heritage consequences are disastrous. The scam always involves the accomplishment of fraudulent schemes. Often and more and more, these are deliberately opaque, drowned in schemes or suspicious transactions often very complex:


  • Internet scams (fake ads, fraudulent sales, etc.)

  • Account hacking (phishing, data theft, identity theft, fake mail, etc.)

  • Sentiment scams

  • Use of false cheques and means of payment

  • Scam to fake financial investments (fake investments, cryptocurrency, fake insurance contracts, crappy financial arrangements, etc.)

The firm PROCAP DETECTIVE is competent to help you in the constitution of the elements of evidence constituting fraud, but also in the context of prevention by bringing you any element of verified information concerning the degree of risk that constitutes a person, a situation or transaction, detect fraudulent practices, or detect attempts to manipulate.
