North East Fraud Forum 2019 Annual Conference – “Who is dealing with Fraud?”

November 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

- Free - £150

Agenda Synopsis

Since the 2006 Fraud Review there has been a continuing discussion on the policing of fraud. On the one hand the 2019 report of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services noted that fraud was ‘rarely seen as a priority’.  On the other hand, there are encouraging developments from both the City of London and the NCA.   At the same time, many public and private sector organisations have taken it upon themselves to respond, internally or within their sector, to their specific fraud issues, whether prevention or investigation. Within this dynamic context, the NEFF conference brings together not only industry examples of such responses but also the latest law enforcement initiatives to explore today’s issues, options and future developments.  For any organization addressing fraud, such information will be invaluable, as will be the insights into the police’s current plans.

The presentation provides an overview of Project JACKAL, an initiative within Police Scotland which encourages the use of business analysis in understanding organized crime groups; in particular how criminal revenue streams are managed to assert influence in legitimate business markets. It uses a number of case studies to show how the money management mechanisms established with the help of professional enablers to achieve this can also be exploited to process and launder the proceeds from major fraud types such as pension liberation fraud, tax carousel fraud and investment fraud.Kenneth Murray MA CA, Head of Forensic Accountancy – Police Scotland
