Article preview: With rising levels of financial fraud, what is the finance sector doing to tackle the fraudsters? A new report from UK Finance offers a useful insight into the work of the Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit (DCPCU) in the first half of this year. This unit has dismantled 13 organised crime groups in that timeframe, which is double the number in the same period last year. DCPCU is a specialist police unit, funded by the banking and finance industry. It targets organised crime gangs who are responsible for fraud.
