    I was recently scammed out of a sum of money by a dodgy service provider. As it turns out, the police have no interest because it is a civil law matter. I have since discovered through an ASIC check that the name and abn is registered to someone else (not the person that scammed me). I don't know if they are in on it together but if not, I want to know if that is enough to get the interest of the law?

    Will the police care that someone is issuing invoices pretending to be from a company they have no relation to? Is this another civil matter?

    It is both a civil and criminal matter. Police have no interest because it means paperwork and investigation. Much easier to say it is a civil matter.
