The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) sits alongside Action Fraud within the City of London Police which is the national policing lead for fraud. The NFIB takes all Action Fraud’s reports and uses millions of reports of fraud and cyber-crime to identify serial offenders, organised crime gangs and established or emerging crime types. The NFIB gets its data through three main channels:
Reports from individuals and small businesses (coming either directly or via a police force) made to Action Fraud on the phone or online.
Fraud data from industry and the public sector which includes banking, insurance, telecommunications and government departments.
A variety of intelligence sources including, but not limited to, national and international police crime/intelligence systems.
