Date: November 21, 2007

UK Chancellor Alistair Darling managed to keep a straight face as he told the House of Commons that as terrifying as the loss of 25 million child benefit records might look, no fraud on these accounts had been detected. But how can he be certain? There is no mechanism for detecting such crimes.

The Government has poked around its dusty bucket of initiatives and – hey presto – found the long-overdue £11 million National Fraud Reporting Centre, supposed to be run by the City of London Police Fraud Squad and, in theory, the place that in future all reports of e-fraud will end up to be mulled over by the police. Except that the NFRC strategy appears to have flaws.
