How we deal with fraud

Last updated on: 16-Oct-2020

1. Overview

Fraud is a criminal offence. Fraud is where someone acts dishonestly to make a gain for themselves or another person.

People who commit fraud deceive us by

  • Telling us false information
  • Failing to tell us about certain things
  • Abusing their position

Fraud and corruption has a direct impact on the community as losses to us could mean cuts in services or increases in council tax costs to maintain services.

Our Anti-Fraud and Corruption Strategy is designed to prevent this from happening, promote detection and support investigation.

We operate a shared service for all of our Audit and Counter Fraud activity, including investigation. This service is hosted by Medway Council.
