Reported fraud 'at 10-year high'
Financial firms are counting the cost of fraud
Source: BBC Online, 2006-01-30

Reported fraud in the UK has reached a 10-year high, with cases involving a total of almost £1bn reaching the courts, according to a study.

Accountancy giant KPMG's annual Fraud Barometer said 222 cases involving a total of £942m reached court in 2005, up from 172 cases worth £329m in 2004. . . .

Much of the rise comes from several high-profile attacks on the government, KPMG found.

Two in particular - involving the repeated use of mobile phones and tobacco to rip off the VAT system in a scam called carousel fraud - were worth almost £100m alone.
