Fraud Forum

The fourth annual conference of The London Fraud Forum will run on Thursday, October 7, at the same venue as last autumn, One Great George Street, London SW1P 3AA

Alan Day, regional fraud forum chairman, of Transport for London, says:

The latest fraud barometer from the National Fraud Authority highlights that the harm caused by fraud to the UK is far worse than originally thought. Thus the continued objective of the London Fraud Forum has become even more important than when we started: to bring together businesses and organisations from both the public and private sectors to combine forces to tackle the growing threat from fraud head on, by actively sharing knowledge, ideas and experiences.

For our fourth annual conference we have again put together a programme that focuses on many of the key issues currently 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. This year we shall also be looking specifically at fraud in the world of sport and how this may affect the 2012 Olympic Games. You may have already seen some headlines:

“Organised criminal gangs are snapping up domain names, ready to launch rip-off ticket sites for the 2012 Olympic Games.” “The Serious Fraud Office will be at the high court today to hear a civil judgment in the case of Rebecca Adlington’s missing Olympic tickets.”

Thus we will be looking at the some of the key fraud risks such as employment fraud and gaming fraud, as well fraud prevention strategies designed to minimise these risks – for the 2012 Olympics but also, of course, for the anti-fraud arena in general. We will also be running our popular interactive breakout sessions, looking at such key areas as bribery and corruption, data sharing and asset recovery.

Last year’s event was again a sell-out. With over 250 people attending we were turning people away – so please do not delay in booking your place! Our annual conference is an ideal opportunity for existing London Fraud Forum members to meet and network with fellow anti-fraud practitioners who you may have met at previous events, but it also provides a very useful introduction for new members to the work of the organisation and the benefits of joining. The conference delegate fee of only £140 + VAT includes a year’s membership of the organisation – so represents amazingly good value!

We very much hope you will to want to join your fellow anti-fraud professionals from the London region and outside, to ensure that we continue to combine all our efforts in strengthening the fight against financial crime. I look forward to meeting you at the conference, and during the course of the coming year.
