A new National Fraud Reporting Centre - 'Action Fraud' – has been launched by the National Fraud Authority and the Attorney General's office. Individuals and Small Businesses are being encouraged to report fraud through Action Fraud as a first port of call.
Action Fraud is the new place for you to find out about fraud. Action Fraud is the UK’s national fraud reporting centre. If you’ve been scammed, ripped off or conned, there is something you can do about it. Speak to ‘Action Fraud.’

If you’ve been a victim of identity theft, please get in touch with ‘Action Fraud.’
Action Fraud believes we can beat fraud if we talk.
Early recognition of fraud can be vital, so no matter whether you think you’ve been a victim of fraud or you just want to know how to protect yourself, this is the place to start.
Every fraud, no matter what scale, is important to Action Fraud so call now on 0300 123 2040.
When you report a fraud to Action Fraud, they’ll give you a crime reference number and your information will be sent to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau.
Although each report cannot be investigated, the information will help the police build up a picture of who is committing what fraud. This will help them to stop the fraudsters and keep other potential victims safe.
Currently, fraud is one of the most under-reported crimes in the UK.
Any information that you have could help us prevent a crime. If in doubt, give us a call.
That is why Action Fraud has been set up. For the first time, members of the public have a central point of contact to report a suspected fraud, or find out how to protect themselves against it.
If debit or credit cards, online banking or cheques are involved in the fraud, your first step should be to contact your bank or credit card company, if you haven’t already done so.
