Courier Fraud Campaign

In 2021, over £15 million was lost to courier fraud in the UK. 

For the vulnerable victims of this sophisticated scam, the emotional and financial impacts are devastating. 

To the criminal gangs behind it, the profits fund wider serious crime that impacts communities across the country. 

Crimestoppers is working with City of London Police and Action Fraud to raise awareness of what courier fraud is, and how we all have the power to stop it. 

Crimestoppers response is to offer individuals in communities a way to speak up with information on the criminals behind courier fraud, 100% anonymously.

No police contact. No witness statements. No courts.

Whilst messaging, I would like to share an opportunity for you to help shape the future of reporting crime. If you can spare just a few minutes, you can tell police chiefs your experiences of the 101 and 999 services to help them make improvements. Complete the Police Contact Survey here.
