star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of prosecutions brought under the Fraud Act 2006. However, records are held showing the overall number of offences charged in which a prosecution commenced in the magistrates’ courts (the distinction being that some prosecutions involved multiple offences). These figures are detailed in the following table:</p><br /><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Number of offences charged under the Fraud Act 2006 in which a prosecution commenced in the magistrates’ court*</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009-10</p></td><td><p>27,759</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>29,592</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>28,164</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>26,581</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>25,832</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>26,113</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em>* Data Source: CPS management information system</em></p><br /><p>The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigates and, where appropriate, prosecutes the topmost tier of serious or complex fraud cases.

star this property answer text <p>The Serious Crime Act 2015 introduced a new domestic abuse offence of coercive or controlling behaviour in intimate and familial relationships. The statutory guidance underpinning the offence is clear that financial abuse, such as controlling the victim’s finances, is a type of behaviour that can form part of a purposeful pattern of behaviour over time to exert power, control or coercion over another person.</p><p>In 2017-18 960 offences of coercive or controlling behaviour have been charged and reached a first hearing, more than three times the volume in the previous year. This shows that the offence is having an impact and sends a strong message that coercive or controlling behaviour will not be tolerated.</p><p>On 21 January we published our landmark draft Domestic Abuse Bill and consultation response which will transform the cross-Government response to this devastating crime. The draft Bill includes provisions for a statutory definition of domestic abuse, including economic abuse. Replacing ‘financial’ with ‘economic’ acknowledges how broad this form of abuse is and how many aspects of a victim’s life it can affect, such as limiting their access to fundamental resources such as money, food, transport, employment and housing. This will raise awareness of the issue of economic abuse and also enable frontline professionals and the criminal justice system to better understand, recognise and tackle it, so that victims can be supported to achieve the economic stability that they need.</p><p>The draft Bill is underpinned by a comprehensive package of non-legislative action which we have set out in our consultation response, including a commitment to review the effectiveness of the coercive or controlling behaviour offence to ensure it is fit for purpose and that it adequately protects victims from abuse. In addition, we have committed to update the statutory guidance and CPS legal guidance on the offence to include economic abuse and provide guidance on how this form of abuse can manifest itself as part of a pattern of coercive control</p><p> </p>
