Stamping out crime saves money in the long run, if the stomps are applied strategically.
Yes, it's frustrating when our efforts to help the police are met with indifference, and I have had this happen. Police are often busy, or have higher priority cases. However, the alternative (not reporting fraud) is worse.
Obvious and ham-fisted attempts at fraud I toss straight into the bin, as they are of little consequence to anyone. But, more sophisticated attempts that have the very real possibility of costing merchants and card holders significant loss need to be reported. We owe it to each other.
