Victims of fraud in Hertfordshire are asked to report their crime via Action Fraud – a national centre, launched by the National Fraud Authority, providing a single point of contact for reporting all types of fraud, including investment, credit card and consumer fraud, as well as identity theft, doorstep fraud and online fraud.
Action Fraud is able to offer support, information and guidance to anyone who feels they have been a victim. They also provide an A to Z of types of fraud together with prevention advice. For advice or to report a crime, contact Action Fraud or on 0300 123 2040.
To help you recognise and tackle fraud, Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Crime Reduction and Community Safety Department produces this regular update, informing you of common and emerging frauds that are affecting people both nationally and locally, together with tips to help you stay safe.
