Abstract

Fraud costs the nation considerably more than any other type of crime. It is surprising, therefore, that so little is known about the nature and extent of fraud. Smith reviews existing data on fraud trends in Australia and identifies ways of improving the level of understanding of the extent to which such crime occurs.
