Filling out a crime report for someone, even though no crime occurred, just to get them to shut-up and go away. Some people report something to a cop, and refuse to accept the cop's answer that no crime occurred. For instance, junk mail received from a foreign country has the citizen convinced they are the target of a scam. The citizen didn't lose any money, didn't give up a credit card number, and isn't really a victim. But they insist on a report. I know that if I don't, they will call the chief, the mayor, or whoever, so to avoid all that cr@p, I just fill out a courtesy report and send them on their way. Usually from senior citizens who are convinced that everything is a scam.
