like this I want to issue a note of caution. Many people use the word 'fraud' to describe situations in which they feel they have suffered a financial loss at the hands of someone else. In lots of cases no fraud has occurred, but that doesn't deter people from making the accusation.
Accusing someone of fraud is a serious matter, and in the case of a false accusation it could lead to a prosecution under sections 5(2) of the 1967 criminal law act.
Anything that helps to stop genuine fraud, or to deter fraudsters in any way can only be a good thing, and ActionFraud is a welcome addition to the support consumers get from other sources.
