2011

36,700 thefts ended in convictions
28,400 economic crimes ended in convictions

However seems only 10% went to prison.

That seems quite a lot of fraud crimes. I'm surprised.

Not really - bear in mind that they will use the term "economic crimes" to cover all sorts of things, even if it's rather minor.

Worth pointing out that freepl.info is also the Opposition mouthpiece - what they're not saying is exactly what these crimes are. They will be mostly small, petty things that we would never class as an "economic crime" and are barely worth mentioning. The line at the end of Poland being "full of tricksters and swindlers" is just the usual garbage from Gazeta Polska.

Worth also pointing out that PiS did very little to improve the justice system, instead preferring to use it to pursue their own agendas.

I smelled a rat! I felt there was sth wrong but was too lazy to find out!

More interesting titles: freepl.info/2809-merkel-germanises-europe

Funny that nearly 30% are about Russia. :)

we're talking about Poland, of course it must be rather minor, right delph? ;-)

Well, it is a rather Polish thing to describe small things as "economic crimes" ;)

Interestingly, the freepl site explains that the IPN needed 24 million to buy the building that they're in. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks that Poland could use 24 million in a far more effective way, especially given the vast property portfolio that the state has.

Incidentally, if anyone is in any doubt about how rubbish the freepl site really is - consider that it claims to be about Poland, but half the articles are about Germany and Russia. One of their latest editorials, claiming that PO has made institutions part of the party - well, I think we all remember what happened with TVP.

Merged: What happened with the RM money for the Gdańsk shipyards

This remains a nice mystery. rydzyk was collecting money from all poor babcias in Polska B to save the Gdańsk shipyards... And then zip....it all disappeared, not one PLN paid out to the needy. (in his geothermal money scheme?). Was he ever held to account for this swindle? I do not think so.

Surely he'd have to account for the money and file accounts. Perhaps he needed another Maybach.

I still think Toruń is a very beautiful city :). Good they still have part of the city walls to keep the scum outside :)

Merged: Be aware of the rising trend of identity thefts that start with getting a copy or scan after your passport

Each year over 120 million identity thefts happen only in United States, and a lot more worldwide.

They usually start innocently with someone getting a copy or a scan of your official documents like the passport, at a hotel reception for example.

By law, they are NOT ALLOWED to scan or copy your id, but they do it by saying it speeds up the check in process.

Be aware that your copy and scans of passport can be used for open up various online banking accounts. PayPal accounts, mobile subscriptions, credit lines and many other types of identity theft, where you will usually lose your hard earned money without knowing what is happening

Be vigilant and prevent identity theft easily by not allowing them to make scans or copies after your passport in the first place
