Hi there.

I know of someone who has an arrest warrant against their name. This person has been contacted by two different "police officers" from two different stations in a different province to where this person is currently situated in.

This person has a "warrant" for "fraud" but they cannot see any where that they have committed any fraud. This person also has a business where they trade Forex (for themself) and sells trading software with the help of a mentor. This person has employed people on a contractors contract to be sales people for said software. These sales people receive a base salary and commission thereafter for every sale made. One of these sales people has received their base salary but not their commission as their clients requested a refund for the software as they didn't want it anymore.

Is this allowed? What are the steps that this person needs to take? Why does this person have a fraud case against them?
