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>

answer text <p>The Economic Crime Strategic Board’s membership comprises senior representatives from the organisations – in both public and private sectors – most critical to tackling economic crime. This includes representatives from government departments, law enforcement, regulators and the banking, legal, accountancy and real estate sectors. The decision to have private sector representation reflects the regulated sector’s role as the first line of defence against economic crime.</p><p> </p><p>The Board sets priorities, directs resources and scrutinises performance against the economic crime threat. It does not perform any role in determining regulators’ or law enforcement’s operational response to economic crime.</p><p> </p><p>Civil society and academic institutions have been consulted in the development of the Economic Crime Plan, a draft of which will be considered at the Board’s next meeting on 10th July. Following publication of the Plan, the government will be reviewing the overall governance for economic crime. This review will consider how civil society should be best engaged.</p>

answer text The Government takes fraud extremely seriously and recognises the devastating impacts these crimes can have. The Government has created the Joint Fraud Taskforce, which brings together government, the banks and law enforcement to develop a collective response to fraud. The objectives of the Taskforce are to protect the public and businesses from fraud, reduce the impact of fraud on victims, and increase the disruption and prosecution of fraudsters.<p> </p>It has also been made easier to report fraud to law enforcement. Action Fraud is the UK’s reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime, providing a central point of contact for information about fraud and financially motivated internet crime. more like this
