Fraud

Action Fraud

Action Fraud, the UK's first national fraud reporting centre, takes crime reports from victims of fraud and provides a crime reference number.

This information is then fed to the police's National Fraud Intelligence Bureau to gain a more complete national picture of fraud. Action Fraud also provides a wide range of information about how to protect yourself from becoming a victim.

For more advice or to report a fraud, visit www.actionfraud.police.uk or call 0300 123 2040.
