star this property answer text <p>The Government takes all types of fraud extremely seriously. We are working closely with law enforcement agencies and industry to pursue and disrupt criminal activities, ensure that members of the public have the knowledge to protect themselves, and prevent criminals from using telephones to exploit vulnerable victims. <br><br>The City of London Police is the national lead force for fraud, and runs Action Fraud, the national reporting point for fraud and financially-motivated cyber crime. All reports made to Action Fraud are analysed for links between separate victims of the same scams. Where these are found, intelligence packages are sent to the police force best placed to consider enforcement action. In 2013/14, there were 40,000 intelligence reports disseminated to police forces in this way. We expect this number to increase this year and are working with the City of London Police, and their partners, to deliver further improvements. <br><br>We are also working closely with Financial Fraud Action UK, which has issued advice to consumers on how to protect themselves from phone scammers. This includes recognising when they might be targeted by criminals, and knowing not to give out sensitive details, such as four-digit PIN numbers, which a bank will never ask for.<br><br>Finally, Ofcom has worked closely with the Metropolitan Police Service, Action Fraud and landline providers to prevent criminals exploiting phone lines to trick and defraud members of the public. The majority of landline providers have reduced the time a call remains open after one party hangs up down to two seconds. This makes it much more difficult for criminals to exploit phone lines in this way.</p>
