The below Parliamentary question was asked by Damian Green on 2015-10-22.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what proportion of calls received by Action Fraud have resulted in a police investigation to date; and if she will make a statement.

Mike Penning

I refer my Rt. Hon Friend to the answer I gave him on 27th October 2015 to question 12259.

It is the responsibility of the local Chief Constable, in conjunction with their Police and Crime Commissioner, to determine the resources they devote to tackling fraud and cyber crimes locally. The Government does not hold data on the proportion of calls received by Action Fraud which result in a police investigation.
