Our Fraud Team
Our fraud team's main function is to detect fraudulent applications for student support. They do this by;
- Carrying out proactive and reactive fraud investigations;
- Sharing data with
- The Department of Work and Pensions,
- Her Majesty’s Revenue and Custom service and,
- Our many partner bodies;
We take a very serious view on fraud or attempted fraud.
We will investigate any instance where fraud may have taken place and, if sufficient evidence is available, we will submit a report to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) for consideration to prosecute the individual.
