    In march 2017, while Marlene Morissette was abroad, his daughter organized a small evening with friends at the home of the latter.

    This evening coincides with the beginning of suspicious transactions made on the credit cards of Ms. Morissette. “They have been stolen from a wallet in the wardrobe of my bedroom”, she explains.

    She claims to be defraud for about 3000 $.

    After having received a refund of financial institutions, Ms. Morissette has filed a complaint with the Service de police de la Ville de Québec (SPVQ) on march 14, 2017.

    With the help of one of the traders in which a fraudulent transaction has been made, it claims to have identified one of the suspects, who was present at the evening of his daughter. She has had similar collaboration with other retailers, where she has obtained videos.

    The items collected were delivered to the investigator on the file. “It left them with much to do,” says the woman from Quebec.

    The record was finally exceeded the limitation period of six months and has been closed without prosecution.

    “My goal was that justice be done,” she says.

    The SPVQ explains that so solid seem to be evidence in the eyes of citizens, the test of the law is different. “Sometimes people have difficulty telling the difference between reasons and suspicions. You must pick up any solid proof,” says Étienne Doyon, a spokesperson to the SPVQ.
