The Prime Minister’s Plans To Tackle Fraud

May 10, 2023

The Government launched its new Fraud Strategy on 3 May 2023, recognising that: "Fraud now accounts for over 40% of crime. It costs us nearly £7 billion a year and we know these proceeds are funding organised crime and terror."

Taking a stance on the challenges, the Government commented: "It’s time to take the fight to the scammers and fraudsters, and put an end to these crimes which can devastate lives and livelihoods within seconds."

Three key focus points of the plan include:

  • We’re going to stop scams reaching people in the first place
  • We will bring more fraudsters to justice
  • We will empower people to better protect themselves
