An online form for reporting benefits fraudsters allows people to contact the Department of Social Security directly via the internet to report their suspicions.
Social security minister Jeff Rooker said: ‘Fraudsters are stealing from us all – over £80m a year is lost to every household in this country as a direct result of people cheating the system.
‘Today we are giving the public another means of joining the fight against fraud. The internet page is easy to use and is strictly confidential. I am confident it will be put to good use by all the honest citizens who are fed-up with being taken for a ride by fraudsters.’
People using the new service will be able to remain anonymous, and the information they submit using the form will remain confidential.
The internet reporting form can be found at the Targeting Fraud website.
