SFO contacts firms for fraud advice
SFO contacts advisers for guidance on current fraud trends in the City
The biggest firms have been contacted by the Serious Fraud Office to provide
advice on current fraud issues affecting business.
The SFO is pushing for whistleblowers to step forward, as the current
economic conditions make instances of fraud more likely to occur and will also
reveal previous problems.
As part of its drive to detect fraud, SFO director Richard Alderman said that
advisers were contacted for advice.
‘We’ve been talking to leading solicitors, accountants and those prominent in
the City and the US,’ said Alderman on an SFO podcast. ‘It’s given us a lot of
insight into what’s been going on in the City.’
