The KPMG fraud barometer serves the purpose of giving an independent assessment of the current level of Fraud and risk in the UK. It highlights some issues which do not necessarily make headlines. These, in monetary terms, low level crimes impact greatly on the most vulnerable members of our society – like the elderly or those in financial distress.
It also reveals that businesses and public authorities continue to be targeted with funding investment fraud rising to over £176 million a massive year on year increase.
One of the benefits of the report is it provides a regional breakdown which allows businesses and other interested parties the opportunity to look at the threats at a local level.
