Public Affairs and Policy

Cifas provides policy makers with essential insight into the issue of fraud and financial crime via in-depth statistics, briefings, and responses to consultations.

The Cifas Fraud Pledges 2024

At Cifas we are fully supportive of the HM Government Fraud Strategy launched in 2023 and playing our part to support its delivery.

The strategy provides a good foundation from which to start tackling the UK’s fraud epidemic. However, at Cifas we are always striving to go further and faster in the fight against fraud and economic crime. That is why we have launched the Cifas Fraud Pledge 2024 setting out proposals for the next generation of fraud reforms.
