Charity Fraud Seminar

January 31, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

- Free

Seminar Synopsis

Like any other sector, charities are not immune to criminal abuse from fraudsters. Fraud poses a serious risk to valuable funds and sensitive data, and can damage the good reputation of charities, affecting public trust and confidence in the sector as a whole.

Fraud is dishonesty, involving either:

  • false representation, for example identity fraud
  • failing to disclose information
  • abuse of position to make a gain or cause loss to another

Fraud is the most reported crime in the UK. According to the Office for National Statistics, an individual in the UK is 10 times more likely to be a victim of fraud than theft. The charity sector is no different.
