    ReputationRep:
    – an average of more than £3,900 per adult in the UK with losses taking place at a rate of £6,000 per second.


    Payroll fraud, which accounts for losses of £12 billion per year – 8 per cent of the total cost of fraud to the private sector.
    • The charity or ‘third sector’ is hit with fraud costs of nearly £2 billion per year.
    Mortgage lending, which suffers losses equivalent to £1.3 billion annually and in which 84 applications out of every 10,000 are suspected to be fraudulent.
    Insurance sector fraud, costing £1.3bn a year through illegitimate claims with an estimated 350 frauds every day.
    Fraud in the public sector of around £37.5 billion and is equivalent to 5.5 per cent of the £694 billion spent annually. Central government bears the majority of this cost at around £30 billion per year. Procurement fraud is again a major source of losses, costing central and local Government a combined £10.5 billion per year.
    Other key areas that are hitting Government purse strings include:
    • Tax fraud costing £15.4 billion every year, equal to 3% of the total tax revenue.
    • Fraud losses in the NHS relating to income and expenditure amounting to £2.5 billion.
    • Housing tenancy fraud is estimated to cost £1.7 billion.
    • Benefit and tax credit fraud are estimated at £2.4 billion.
    • Grant fraud is estimated to cost £2.7 billion.

    Well at the top end, the University of Portsmouth said the investigation per missing person costs max £2415, and an estimated 250,000 go missing a year. So that's £603,750,000 a year, which is 603,749,999 in seconds more than you spent trying to find the answer.
