Report Fraud

Report Fraud


Fraud is not a victimless crime, and takes money away from vital public services. If you are suspicious of any fraud taking place, please use the link above to report it.

All reports will be treated in confidence. You do not have to give your name and address, but giving us some contact details means that we can get in touch if there are any queries. Please provide as much information as you can so that we can fully investigate the allegation: often we cannot follow up on an allegation because we do not have enough information to do so.

Please note, we only have the capacity to deal with frauds which involve local councils and housing providers, such as Council Tax Support Fraud, Contractor Fraud, and Housing Tenancy Fraud.

Housing Benefit fraud should be reported to the

Cases of fraud which do not involve councils in Somerset should be reported to Action Fraud.
