We are taking forward this commitment by bringing forward improved asset recovery provisions in the Serious Crime Bill, which is currently before Parliament, and we are working with operational partners to ensure that the use of existing asset recovery powers is considered at the outset of all appropriate investigations.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to tackling all types of fraud regardless of whether they are committed on- or offline. The Fraud Act 2006 contains a range of offences that can be used to prosecute fraudsters who are suspected of phishing. Sections 6 and 7 of the Act, for example, criminalise the possession, making and supply of articles for the use in fraud which could include computer software programme used to create phishing websites.</p><p> </p><p>Although we hold data on the total number of prosecutions and convictions for offences under the the Fraud Act 2006, we cannot separately identify what proportion of these cases specifically relate to phishing scams.</p> more like this
