With public funding being stretched, it is as important as ever to identify and combat fraud to prevent losses. Veritau – the council owned company that investigates fraud against the public sector – will be highlighting some of the frauds affecting our communities during International Fraud Awareness Week (11th – 17th November 2018).
Fraud against the public purse deprives those most in need and reduces resources for frontline services. Veritau’s Counter Fraud Team undertakes criminal investigations to stop fraud and the most serious result in a criminal prosecution.
Check in each day this week and follow Veritau on Twitter, @VeritauLimited, to keep up to date and find out what frauds you might spot. You can also take the 5 question fraud quiz to see what you really know about fraud!
