UK fraudsters took advantage of two-thirds more victims during Covid


The number of UK fraud cases worth more than £100,000 jumped by two-thirds (66 per cent) between 2020 and 2021, according to new figures from KPMG’s UK Fraud Barometer.

The figures show fraudsters took a splatter-gun approach to financial crime last year, in defrauding a larger number of victims for smaller sums of money than in 2020.

All in all, UK courts heard 298 cases of serious fraud in 2021, up from 180 cases of fraud worth more than £100,000 in 2020.
