Fraud Increases in First Half of 2009

A surge in the complexity and the number of investment scams pushed the value of UK fraud prosecutions to a record level in the first half of 2009. Seventeen fraudulent investment schemes, amounting to £321 million in all, were prosecuted in UK courts between January and June.

The scams helped to increase the total of frauds to 160, worth £637 million in all.

The £637 million of fraud to have come to light so far this year is five times more than the £133 million for the whole of 2008.
