Fraud Reporting

To fight fraud, we need to find fraud so your time and effort to report suspected fraud is invaluable and helps us on our vision of working together to find and stop fraud.

Fraud defined by ActionFraud is ‘when trickery is used to gain a dishonest advantage, which is often financial, over another person’.

Corruption broadly defined is ‘the abuse of entrusted power for private gain’ (Transparency, 2011).

Bribery is defined as giving or receiving a financial or other advantage in connection with the “improper performance” of a position of trust, or a function that is expected to be performed impartially or in good faith.
