International Fraud Awareness Week

12th to 18th November is International Fraud Awareness week. Veritau (the company that investigates fraud on behalf of the council) will be highlighting some of the frauds that affect our organisation.

If you want to know more about risks to the authority in your service area and how to report concerns to the fraud team, stay alert this week, lookout for articles on the intranet, and follow @VeritauLimited on Twitter to keep up to date with the latest fraud news and guidance.

With fraud costing local government an estimated £2.2 billion per year, it is more important than ever that staff across the council work together to fight fraud that threatens frontline services. Veritau are making it clear that anyone committing fraud against the council will be caught and can be subject to prosecution resulting in a criminal record, fines and/or a custodial sentence.
