    Is there a time limit for acting on a fraud crime?

    No time limit for the police to charge.

    Hi again Tony Danos. I have a situation with family members who forged signatures to take control of a business back in the mid 1970's. Is this still a possibility to do anything about this?

    So is this is the case, what should I do next for a family member who was fraudulently removed from a company he was a partner in by forging of signatures to sign the ownership of the company over to someone else?

    You would have to go to the police with the evidence however the age of the complaint is problematic.

    Proving the fraud so long after the offence.

    Ok but if I think I know the solicitors who were doing the legal work at that time, would they still have kept the documents? It was a case of someone telling the solicitors to go ahead and prosecute or not. The person was my father and he chose not to prosecute at the time.

    Files must be kept for 7 years.
