    As part of the government’s reforms to policing and the fight against serious and organized crime, I have decided to close the National Fraud Authority and realign its responsibilities to reflect the creation of the National Crime Agency.

While the National Fraud Authority has been successful in raising awareness of fraud and improving co-ordination, the focus should now be on cutting economic crime. The National Fraud Authority will close by 31 March 2014 and its functions will be transferred as follows:

    • strategic development and threat analysis will be led by the National Crime Agency • Action Fraud, the national fraud and financially-motivated internet crime reporting centre, will become the responsibility of the City of London Police, to create a stronger end-to-end fraud reporting and analysis system • work to raise awareness of fraud, including delivery of the national e-confidence campaign, will transfer to the Home Office • development of the Counter-fraud Checking Service will be led by the Cabinet Office

    At that time IFIG was affiliated to the ABI Crime and Anti-Fraud Bureau. In 2001, the ABI reaffirmed its key objective as being a strategic organisation. IFIG then developed an independent identity dedicated to the prevention and investigation of insurance fraud in the U.K.

    Since that time, IFIG’s membership has grown rapidly and now stands at over 320 member organisations, consisting of Insurers, Investigators, Loss Adjusters, Lawyers and Law Enforcement. In October 2008, IFIG was granted SAFO status under the Serious Crime Act 2007.

    All IFIG members are committed to the organisation’s key aims of :

    • Detecting and preventing Insurance Fraud • Raising the profile of Insurance Fraud as a crime • Providing a forum to discuss anti-fraud initiatives and techniques • Sharing relevant Intelligence via the National Intelligence Model

    In order to achieve its objectives, IFIG has developed close...
