How does the statue of limitations run in class action issues, or where multiple victims are involved?

This is hypothetical only, and I realise YANALs... However, assume that a single act affects several people in a manner which they are initially unaware of. When does the time limit begin to run, particularly in a criminal context, where only the state can prosecute? Is it when one victim is aware, when they all know, or when the reasonable vicitm could or should have known? Any examples, regardless of juristiction would be very helpful.
