Fraud and the pandemic

A new help sheet has been published by Charity Commission of England & Wales (CCEW), the Fraud Advisory Panel and others that aims to highlight some of the key areas where charities may be vulnerable to fraud as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. It identifies the following headline risks for 2021 to be aware of:

  • Cybercrime
  • Insider (or Staff/Volunteer) fraud
  • Procurement fraud
  • Financial statement fraud

The help sheet also provides a checklist to help charities build a defence to counter these fraud risk areas, and provides links to other resources that charities may find of use.
