To Be Confirmed

Fraud squad victim of scam.

Posted on: July 28, 2009

There’s a great little story tucked away at the bottom of page 19 of the Guardian today. It turns out that the Office of Fair Trading’s (OFT) recent annual report revealed “a cash loss of £250,000, of which £97,000 occurred in 2008-09, and £153,000 occurred in 2007-08”. “This was due to an alleged fraud made possible by a control weakness in the Accounts Payable process,”

If Iwas to pick an organisation that I would expect to be alert to fraudulent activities, an organisation that’s purpose was to alert the general public to the danger of scams would probably be right up there. I mean it’s like the church being a victim to completely immoral behaviour or something…

…oh no wait that happens all the time.
