I did not say we have been defrauded but the fraud is taking place using our names and contact details.

Then they may well be defaming your company. Not that the police will care about that: It's a civil matter.

The people who have actually been defrauded need to contact the UK police and/or their local police. Contacting police across national boundaries is not unheard of at all. I know of people who have been defrauded in the UK contacting both US and German police to report fraudsters.


P.S. I should add that, from what I have seen, both US and German police have in the cases I know of (that is private, fraudulent high value watch sales) proven to be considerably more helpful than UK police. UK police have often said in such circumstances, quite incorrectly, that it's a civil matter (by which they mean that someone has 'accidentally' forgotten to pay or 'accidentally' not sent the item) rather than wanting to accept that the non-payment or non-delivery was intentional and obviously criminal.
