UK fraud down slightly as trends reverse


The first half of 2013 saw a slight drop in overall fraud levels in the UK, with the non-profit anti-fraud organisation Cifas recording 113,980 frauds reported by its users, down 3% from the second half of 2012. On a quarterly basis, meanwhile, it's notable that after a peak in late 2011 and early 2012, overall fraud rates have now been roughly constant at between 56,000 and 59,000 per quarter for the last 15 months.

Facility takeover fraud, which rose 53% from 2011 to 2012, dropped back again
