The latest fraud trends and patterns affecting the UK economy.

August 2019 results

Our latest results from the KPMG Fraud Barometer have just been published. The Fraud
Barometer has been tracking fraud trends since the 1980s and analysis of cases has
continually identified trends in the types of fraud that have dominated courts. The biannual
Barometer identifies the latest fraud trends and patterns affecting the UK economy
which helps businesses remain alert to new threats and respond to any fraud risks in an
appropriate and proactive manner.

Key highlights from the release:

  • Fraud by value reached £319 million.
  • The volume of fraud decreased by 13%.
  • The data showed a worrying commercialisation of cyber-crime.
  • Increased trend in the number of repeat offenders heading back to Court.

Request a copy of our 30 year report. This report, released in 2017, looks back at the key macro-trends to have emerged since we first started collecting data in 1987. It looks back
at how the fraud landscape has changed over the last three decades, and considers what
the future fight against fraud may look like.
