The UK has become the card fraud capital of Europe

UK named Europe’s card fraud capital: Brits almost nine times more likely to be scammed than Germans

  • In the UK, there are 134 cases of card fraud per 1,000 people
  • This is 19 more than in France and 119 more than in Germany

The United Kingdom is recognized as the card fraud capital of Europe, with Britons almost nine times more likely to fall victim to fraud than their neighbors Germany.

According to the think tank Social Market Foundation, there are 134 cases of card fraud per 1,000 people in the UK.

This is 19 more than in France and 119 more than in Germany.

On average, card fraud cost Britons £8,833.20 – almost £3,000 more than nearest competitor France

The amount stolen was also significantly higher than in other European countries, with card fraud costing us £8,833.20 on average – almost £3,000 more than nearest rival France and almost £8,000 more than Italy.

In June, the Mail revealed how Britain had become the fraud capital of the world, with losses of almost £3bn a year.

Spending per person in the UK is much higher than in other leading Western economies, including the US, Canada and Australia.

Our Stop Fraud campaign is calling for an overhaul of the system, starting with the appointment of a Fraud Minister.
