Smartphone app encourages residents to join fraud fight

Residents are now able to help tackle fraud by reporting suspected cases through a new North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) app.

The North West Leicestershire Fraud Reporter App can be used to report in absolute confidence in any instance where residents suspect fraud is being committed in relation to council tax, business rates, corruption, tenancy, payments, insurance, employment, grants or any other suspicion.

All reports will be investigated by the council who will bring in other agencies, such as the police, where appropriate.

England’s Counter Fraud and Corruption Strategy estimated that last year alone local government across the UK lost at least £2.1 billion to fraud.
