SFO calls on top firms in credit crunch fraud
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is attempting to draft in the help of the UK's top law firms in detecting fraud arising from the credit crunch. The SFO has sent letters to the senior and managing partners of leading law and accountancy firms, encouraging them to blow the whistle on fraudulent behaviour, as the body moves to detect bad practices earlier.In addition, the organisation has posted a form on its website, allowing city workers and shareholders to confidentially send in any information on suspected fraud.SFO director Richard Alderman has launched a podcast to appeal for help detecting fraud from those who might have useful information.
