Cifas comment response to National Audit Office report PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 30 June 2017
Following on from the release of the report this morning if you are writing about this, Deputy Chief Executive Mike Haley has issued the following comment:   “We welcome the report findings from the National Audit Office and a number of its recommendations. In particular, we would welcome the expansion of the membership of the Joint Fraud Taskforce to include other stakeholders, such as the retail and digital sectors, improving the collection and reporting of fraud, and examining sentencing guidelines for fraud, which are all proposals that Cifas has called for previously. “

“Last year, our cross-sector membership reported a record 324,683 fraud crimes, 66% of which was cyber-enabled and nine out of 10 identity frauds committed online. These statistics speak for themselves: this is a high volume crime that needs to be given more priority by government, law enforcement and industry. We therefore strongly agree that tackling online fraud should be a strategic priority for policing.

“We also endorse the need for government, law enforcement and industry to work together to raise awareness of how people can better protect themselves, and specifically we want to see fraud education in the school curriculum so that young people can be made more aware of the consequences of falling victim to a fraud as well as committing fraud.”
