Fraud (1576A/22)


Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, please could I request the following information:

a) How much money was lost to fraudsters and scammers within the force’s jurisdiction in 2020 and 2021 and so far in 2022? (If the force records fraud and scams as separate crimes, please provide data for both)

b) Of this sum, how much was recovered from the perpetrators?


I am writing to inform you that we have searched our records and the information you requested is not held by West Midlands Police.

Action Fraud is the national fraud and online crime reporting centre, fraud and cyber-crime statistics can be found on their website, for example here or via an interactive dashboard here.
