Dear Mr. Patel,

You can file a report at the police office if you want the prosecutor involved. You can also file a civil law suit against the offender if there is a good chance that the person will pay you the money back. There will be legal costs for the lawyer and the court you have to pay up front but you might be able to get the money back from the other party.
