UK: ACTION FRAUD SCRAPPED AFTER EXPOSÉ BY THE TIMES

On 29 July, KYC 360 reported that the UK police’s national fraud reporting service is being scrapped after damning failings were exposed and will be replaced with “an improved national fraud and cybercrime reporting system”, and a new force dedicated to fighting cybercrime will also be set up within the NCA to investigate the most complex and serious cases.  An investigation found that Action Fraud trained call handlers to mislead victims into thinking their cases would be investigated when most were never looked at.
