The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Financial Crime and Scamming launched in October 2017.
Financial crime, including fraud, scams and money laundering, are serious issues affecting people and businesses in every part of the country. The Office of National Statistics’ crime figures revealed that nearly 3.4 million frauds took place in the year ending March 2017 – the single largest crime by some margin.
This crime affects real people and every single week thousands of people in the UK are defrauded or scammed. Some of these victims can lose their life savings or businesses through these frauds and scams.
That is why the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Financial Crime and Scamming was formed.
This APPG will challenge the response to fraud from law enforcement, government, and the public, private and charity sectors and is a channel for useful expert briefings on these issues to parliamentarians.
If you would like more information about the APPG please do get in touch.
