Tackling fraud including cyber-crime
Fraud and cyber-crime are the most common crimes committed in the UK, and cyber-crime has increased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic. These crimes are often targeted at the most vulnerable people in our society and can have a devastating financial and psychological impact on victims.
Fraud needs a combined local, regional, national, and international approach to fully tackle it. If elected I will make sure there is more focus on prevention and additional resources are made available to support victims in our area.
