Critically evaluate the data representing the level of fraud in the UK in respect of:
- Banking Fraud
- VAT Fraud
- Benefit Fraud
- Insurance Fraud
- Mortgage Fraud
This involves an explanation as to what figures are available, how accurate they are and what sources of data there are (and, if they differ why do they differ). All to be supported by data, graphs, tables (in colour) to be labelled, referenced and attached as Appendices and are not included in the word count. These must be cross referenced in the narrative (as you did in Professional Skills last year) to provide evidence for your analysis.
Use subtitles for each type of Fraud
I do not require an explanation of what each type of fraud entails just analysis of the data.
