My friend has committed $400 property fraud a few weeks ago, but wants to make amends by returning the property. The victim has already reported the fraud to police and there is is currently an investigation under way, but she has recently contacted my friend and asked if she returned the goods, she will drop the charges. Once someone has reported fraud to police, will the police still pursue it if the victim drops the charges and restitution are made before any charges are laid/the matter goes to court? What sort of police record will be made if the charges are dropped? Will that affect employment prospects and overseas travel?
