    Last year, the UK economy lost £52 billion from fraud and 70 per cent of companies suffered from at least one type of fraudulent activity. Yet only half of UK companies have a fraud policy in place. With cybercrime set to increase throughout 2014, this report investigates the rise in e-commerce fraud, tackling financial services and card fraud, and corruption risks in emerging markets. It also explores the importance of company anti-fraud and whistleblowing                                             policies, and how businesses can better protect their digital                                   assets and IP.

    This is a United Kingdom Financial Intelligence Unit (UKFIU) Guidance Note. It is produced in line with the National Crime Agency (NCA) commitment to share perspectives on the Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) Regime. From 1 October 2014, for those SARs requesting consent which are missing the reason for suspicion or fail to identify the nature of the criminal property, the case will be closed without further engagement from the UKFIU. The reporter will be sent a                                       letter from the UKFIU explaining which parts of the                                                 information are missing and that your case is closed.
