Recent review of fraud in the UK indicates that annual losses are now estimated to now top £70 billion*. Fraud is widely defined as a dishonest and deceitful activity which results in direct and indirect losses to an organisation in various forms. A survey has indicated that 48% of companies reported being victims of fraud**.

Fraud has now reached unprecedented levels. As a crime, fraud has evolved massively and now runs along widely-ranging differing lines of schemes, types and ways of committing it. Despite these realities, the extent of financial crime, the critical loss areas and the motivations to commit fraud are worryingly underestimated.
