15th January 2021 - Crimestoppers COVID Fraud Hotline Launched

Crimestoppers COVID Fraud Hotline

Don't let fraudsters abuse COVID support.

The Crimestoppers COVID Fraud Hotline (0800 587 5030) has been set up by HM Government in partnership with Crimestoppers to enable individuals to report fraud within the public sector during COVID. See here for full details. 

The hotline allows those with information to anonymously report their concerns in the knowledge that this information will be dealt with.

Giving them information in relation to fraud means they can help protect the public purse from individuals and companies seeking to undermine the stimulus schemes brought in by Her Majesty’s Government to assist people during COVID.

Contact them anonymously on 0800 587 5030 or use the form below if you have any information or suspicions about any potential crime involving the public sector.

If your information is in relation to the furlough scheme, please visit the HMRC Fraud website or if your information is in relation to benefit fraud, including universal credit, please visit www.gov.uk/report-benefit-fraud.

To report fraud within the NHS, please use the NHS Counter Fraud Authority online form.
