The culture of British business has a tendency to inhibit effective fraud prevention. The aim of the Eastern Fraud Forum is to promote fraud awareness and successful fraud prevention and detection strategies across both public and private sectors. This requires the creation of a culture of transparency with better flows of information and open discussion aimed at promoting more widespread understanding and better sharing of ideas. The Eastern Fraud Forum brings together fraud professionals and other interested parties from the public and private sectors with the aim of sharing expertise and experience.
Fraud costs the UK economy an estimated £38.4 billion every year. This figure represents fraud costing each adult member of the population an average of £765 per year.
These are considered to be underestimated figures.
Fraud occurs in both the public and private sectors and will increase unless we combine forces to do something about it. Both the public and private sectors often find it difficult to talk about fraud. In doing so organisations often perceive that they are highlighting their our own deficiencies and those of their businesses. The Eastern Fraud Forum (EFF) has been formed to promote change within an open, anti-fraud culture.
It is the declared aim of the EFF to enable members to participate in discounted training events designed to reduce fraud in the region by making the members better able to fight it.
