ACTION FRAUD 0300 124 2040
Fraud is carried out in many forms. It is conducted in face-to-face interactions, over the telephone, or online. The people who carry out fraud schemes usually do so through anonymity. This makes fraudulent actions much more successful, and it allows the person to continue to make illegal money in the future. For this reason, it is extremely important for all U.K. residents to report fraud whenever they encounter it. It is better to be safe than sorry, so you should report suspicious activity whenever you can.
