FRAUD IS A CRIME IN RESULT OF WHICH SUFFERS BOTH ORGANISATIONS AND SOCIETY – BEYOND EVERY FRAUDSTER STANDS A REAL VICTIM!
Fraud can be faced in different daily life situations. It has become a part of our daily routine and often passes by without too much attention or action. Perhaps, because both governmental and EU budgets seems to be quite unreachable for us in comparison with our personal assets. However, it is our money and each of us should take at least partial responsibility in order to protect it by declaring aloud – if you are dishonest, fraud off!

This is the third year when according to the strategy developed by EU Anti-fraud coordination service (AFCOS) for 2017-2019, cooperation initiative for law-enforcement institutions has been put into practice, in order to fight against the fraud and educate Latvian society about it.
