answer text <p>The Home Office Analysis and Insight Team has developed its evidence base on the scale, nature and impact of fraud against individuals and businesses using comparative analysis from key data sources, such as Action Fraud, the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) and academic literature. The CSEW reports an estimated 3.3 million fraud incidents in England and Wales for the year ending June 2018. In the same period, the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) notes 641,700 fraud and computer misuse offences referred, including those from Action Fraud (the UK’s national reporting centre for fraud and cyber crime) with 288,703 offences reported.</p><p>The Home Office is working in partnership with the wider public and private sectors to develop measures aimed at reducing peoples’ vulnerability to fraud. We have also been working with law enforcement to improve the reporting and investigation of fraud and the support provided to victims. Last year, the Secretary of State commissioned Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire &amp; Rescue Services to carry out a thematic inspection of the policing response to fraud. The inspection report is due to be published in early 2019, and will inform our future activity.</p>
