Fraud Forum Day

by msecadm4921

Fraud is no longer limited to large businesses but affects all members of society. Indeed, it is the vulnerable who are most likely to be the target of fraudsters and on whom fraud has the biggest and most serious impact. So say organisers of the London Fraud Forum annual conference, running on Thursday October 6, at One Great George Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3AA.

Thus it is up to fraud professionals to work harder and smarter to counter this risk- working together with government, other public sector organisations, the private sector, the voluntary sector, law enforcement, SMEs and individuals. Only by working together will we be able to defeat the fraudster. For as Edmund Burke said, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Alan Day added that the London Fraud Forum (like other regional fora) seek to bring together businesses and organisations from both the public and private sectors to combine forces to tackle fraud. Speakers invited include Stephen Harrison, Director of Enforcement at the National Fraud Strategic Authority; Simon Scales, Director – Global Investigations at logistics company TNT Express; and Stephen Dalton, Head of Intelligence at the Insurance Fraud Bureau.

“Again we have put together a programme that focuses on many of the key issues facing all practitioners from across the whole spectrum of the anti-fraud community, providing important updates on the latest developments and trends in existing frauds. In addition to some notable keynote speakers this year’s programme provides what we believe will be something to interest everyone with new topics such as counterfeit currency an increasing risk in the run up to London 2012) and fraudulent identity documents.

“Last year’s event was again a sell-out, with over 250 people attending, and we were turning people away – so please do not delay in booking your place.” The conference costs £150 plus VAT which includes a year’s membership of the organisation. There will be a drinks reception at the end of the day, hosted by anti-fraud software firm Detica NetReveal. For more details visit the forum website –
