Crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers is hunting for ten of the most wanted fraudsters from across the UK.
The campaign follows estimates by the National Fraud Authority, which runs Action Fraud, earlier this year that fraud cost the UK an estimated £38 billion in 2010. The ten on Crimestoppers’ Most Wanted Fraudsters list are believed to be responsible for at least £200 million worth of fraud.
With fraud costing each one of us over £700 a year, the national charity has launched the campaign to try and track down ten of the most wanted fraudsters in the UK.
Those profiled as part of the campaign include individuals that are wanted for high value VAT fraud, fraud by false representation and bank account fraud.
