We work closely with our partners in government and the police service to run the Action Fraud reporting service for you.
Action Fraud is run by the National Fraud Authority – the government agency that helps to co-ordinate the fight against fraud in the UK.
The Home Office is the lead government department for crime and police, as well as immigration and passports, drugs policy and counter-terrorism. The Home Office funds the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB). The National Fraud Authority is an executive agency of the Home Office.
The NFIB is where cases of fraud are reported to and was created by the police to help them catch fraudsters. All confirmed reports of fraud from Action Fraud are passed on to the NFIB. Download a 'General Guide to the NFIB' (pdf, 554kb).
The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) is an independent body that leads and co-ordinates the development of the police service. With regard to Action Fraud, ACPO is involved in a Victims Working Group along with other organisations, focusing on improving the support given to victims of fraud.
The charity Victim Support gives free and confidential help to victims of crime, witnesses, their family, friends, and anyone affected across England and Wales. Everyone who reports fraud to Action Fraud is given the option to receive support from Victim Support.
Get Safe Online provides a source of unbiased, user-friendly advice about online safety to UK consumers and micro-businesses, making sure internet users are aware of key risks and have the right information to help protect themselves.
