A new way to report fraud

The way in which fraud is reported has changed. Victims of fraud and internet crime should now contact Action Fraud instead of the police.

Fraud is when trickery is used to gain a dishonest advantage (which is often financial) over another person. This new way of working means that all fraud reports are recorded securely, and effectively analysed to help Police tackle fraud nationally.

Action Fraud is the UK’s national fraud reporting centre, and is run by the National Fraud Authority. It has been set up to act as a “one stop” reporting centre for all information about fraud and financially motivated crime.

Call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or contact themvia their website at

Police call handlers who receive reports of fraud will direct callers to contact Action Fraud. However, there are circumstances when the police should be called and will respond. These are:  If the victim is in immediate danger.  If there is a chance that the suspect could be caught at that time, or there is known local suspect.  If the victim is vulnerable or at risk.

Officers will assist victims in reporting their crime to Action Fraud. PCSO 30103 Beverley Bray, Holsworthy Police Station
