They At Least Acknowledge That Charity Faud Exists


by Gary Snyder

Unlike those in positions to do something about it in the United States, the National Fraud Authority in the United Kingdom is conducting a survey of fraud in the charity sector "to improve understanding of the problem.”  The chief executive of the Charity Commission assisted with the research for the latest survey. He said: "We fully support the National Fraud Authority in raising awareness of, and helping to combat fraud in charities. This survey will provide more up-to-date data regarding the harm caused by fraud across the sector." Earlier this month the Action Fraud reporting system was rolled out across the UK. The launch now means that all incidents of fraud and financially-motivated cyber crime in the UK should be reported to Action Fraud, run by the National Fraud Authority, rather than to local police forces.
