On 29 July, a news release from the City of London Police (lead force in the UK on financial fraud) responds to a Times article on the replacement of the criticised Action Fraud agency. It stresses that there is no intention to “scrap” the Action Fraud service; the service provided by Action Fraud is continuing – but the contract with the current supplier was due to end in 2022 and it was always the intention to procure a new supplier to take on the service beyond this. It goes on to says that, as with all service procurements, this will take some time and we have extended the current contract past its end date in 2022 to ensure a smooth transition period.
