Action Know Fraud in the Media

The Detective Chief Superintendent was heard regarding reports in the media in August 2019 regarding the behaviour of Action Fraud call centre staff. The  Detective Chief Superintendent noted that the Force had been proactively managing the situation, and that Concentrix, the call centre provider, had initaited their own investigation which would likely result in disciplinary action, and IBM had similarly put in place mitigation measures to ensure call centre performance was fit for purpose.
