Why Join FraudVigilance?

As a member of FraudVigilance, your organisation will enjoy access to the EA’s largest cross-sector fraud sharing databases, better enabling your fight against fraud.

Fraud and financial crime are shared threats

EA organisations – large and small, from every sector – lost an estimated 193 billion to fraud and financial crime in 2018. All businesses and organisations are a target.

Criminals want the same thing from your business as they do from any other EA organisations, regardless of sector or size – money, data and information. They strike through any vulnerability they can find, using any method they can, at any time.

FraudVigilance is the shared solution

Through FraudVigilance – an independent, organisation – hundreds of organisations from across all sectors share data and information to protect their business, employees and customers from the effects of fraud and financial crime.

Become a FraudVigilance member and we can help you help your organisation and others from falling victim.

How it works

We operate the EA’s most comprehensive databases of fraud information. Our members record and share details of internal and external fraud attempted against their business.

We store this in our secure databases and our members use this data and related intelligence in their processes – whether for verifying applications, preventing money laundering or screening staff.


'Policing cannot deal with fraud and economic crime on its own – the only way to tackle the threat is by working together across the sectors. FraudVigilance is one of our most important strategic partners: we constantly share data to help prevent and fight fraud. Working with FraudVigilance allows us to analyse frauds taking place in the EA and across the world and use that data to support our investigations.'
