Has anyone applied for the services of The Interpol Police ,from the UAE ?
In regards to 'Bad Cheques' ,where an Indian Citizen has issued post-dated cheques ,duped for a huge amount of money and ran off back to India before the date of the cheque ....... !! :plane:

Concerning the above ,does anybody has experience about Interpol procedures or the best solution to retrieve the amount .......... To start off , Does India & U.A.E. have Interpol Agreements ??? :rolleyes:

Interesting question...

Yes they both do have agreements but you as an individual can't contact them directly, the UAE Police needs to request a "Red Flag" for the debtor, there is obviously a cost involved in this and it may be better to hire someone in India to get the money off them directly.

I know people in India ..... that's not an issue ..
But the law over there has loopholes ........ So def. better to start off in U.A.E. !

In that case I hope you know someone with plenty of wasta, there are 83 people listed as wanted by UAE on Interpol's list, and I understand UAE put's out more alerts to interpol than any other state (stand to be corrected on that).

Well I can't see you getting anywhere other than walking into the police station and filing a case (which you've probably done). The police can't be bothered at the best of times, it's too much hassle for them.

You're right ...... And I've already filed a case ....... And the debtor ,I guess ,is smart enough to never step foot in U.A.E. !!

How much does he owe you? I'd "sell" the debt for 25% of the value to someone who could get it out of them ;), that way you've gained something, let's face it, you're never going to get the cash back are you, so something's better than nothing.

The Chamber of Commerce has been advertising their debt recovery operation (which actually I think is subcontracted/a front for) COFACE through their business support services (Dubai Chamber - LEGAL SERVICES). I've never used that particular service myself so I can't vouch for them, however when we dealt with the DCCI through the business council I was quite impressed with their dedication, organisation and committment to foreign trade.

I seem to remember that this was a fee based service rather than 'buying' the debt. Couldn't do any harm to ask I guess.

Good luck, I really hope you get your money back. People running off leaving debts behind damage all of us.

Well, now that Osama Bin Laden and Carlos the Jackal are dealt with, I am sure that Interpol would be only to happy to use their resources to chase money for someone
