Fraud costs charity sector £1.3 billion, says National Fraud Authority

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Tagged with: Law / policy Research / statistics The National Fraud Authority (NFA) has for the first time put a figure on the cost to the charity sector each year of fraud. The sum of £1.3 billion was derived from responses to a survey by over 1,000 charities. The estimate represents around 2.4% of the total charity sector turnover.The figure is contained within the NFA’s second Annual Fraud Indicator (AFI), published today, which estimates fraud is costing the UK over £38 billion a year. Nearly half of this (£21 billion) affects the public sector, £12 billion the private sector, and £4 billion affects individuals. If the total figure were broken down to a cost per person, then fraud would cost an average of £765 per adult member of the population.Fraud consists of a wide range of techniques, with new ones cropping up, especially using new technology. Fraud methods include credit/debit card and cheque fraud, lottery and advanced fee fraud, online ticketing and rental fraud.The NFA and the Charity Commission are working closely together on a number of counter-fraud prevention initiatives to encourage charities to build improved fraud prevention measures into their operations and to develop a stronger counter fraud culture in this sector.Sam Younger, Chief Executive of the Charity Commission said: “We have previously said that fraud in charities has been under reported, which is reflected in today’s report. However it also shows that instances of charity fraud remain low and the public can be assured that the vast majority of charitable money is going straight to good causes”.During 2009/10 the total value of the fraud and theft reported to the Commission through serious incident reporting by trustees was £21m against a total income £1.74 billion for the 175 reports from the charities affected.Younger added: “Whilst no system can guarantee that any charity or business will be totally protected against loss, charity trustees must make sure that they have strong financial controls in place to protect their charities. One of the ways they can do this is by using the advice and ./guidance on our website. Charity trustees must be more fraud aware, and I hope that today’s report is a wake-up call to any charity who thinks it will never happen to them.”The Charity Commission has produced the following publications to help charities prevent or deal with fraud:CC8: Internal Financial ControlsInternal Financial Controls checklistReporting serious incidents to the CommissionCharities Back on Track 2010 – case studies of charities including cases of AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

TCU falls to Chanticleers in CWS

Tyler Chadwick singled him over, chasing Traver and bringing in Preston Guillory.A sac fly from Billy Cooke brought Woodall home to make it 3-1. Light-hitting catcher David Parrett smacked a ground-rule double in the next at-bat to score Cooke.TCU got on base in the seventh, but couldn’t find a way to bring Cam Warner home from a single.In the eighth, Dane Steinhagen finally put the Frogs on the board with a solo shot to left field and end the scoring at 4-1.The Frogs and Chanticleers will face off for the third time this week on Saturday at 7 p.m. Neither coach would reveal postgame who they would start on the mound Saturday.The winner of this next game will go on to the CWS final; the loser will go home.Though, as Schlossnagle said, his squad is heading into Saturday with a glass half-full attitude.“We don’t have to play baseball tomorrow — we get to play baseball tomorrow,” Schlossnagle said. “We’re fired up to do that.” TCU removes Phi Kappa Sigma for hazing and other misconduct Grant McGalliard TCU students receive evacuation text by mistake Grant McGalliard Baseball season recap: Rebuilding turns to reloading after surprise CWS trip Linkedin Facebook Twitter + posts Grant McGalliard Twitter TCU starting pitcher Mitchell Traver delivers during the first inning of an NCAA College World Series baseball game against Coastal Carolina in Omaha, Neb., Friday, June 24, 2016.

Carefully count any money that is offered, and if the ‘customer’ claims to have changed his mind and asks for the original notes back, carefully count all money before agreeing.Inspector Lemon also suggested that shopkeepers consider not offering money-changing services to people they do not know, and leave that to the banks.It’s believed that some of the people involved are eastern European, and are using a southern registered silver Volkswagen Passat and/or a Grey Ford Mondeo.The PSNI is urging anyone with information to come forward.

Dark Blues Steal Varsity Triumph

first_imgYou never thought you’d hear this, but it was a great day to be in Peterborough.The Blues approached the Varsity Match unbeaten this season, but having lost the last two meetings with Cambridge by large margins. In front of a capacity crowd the Light Blue team came out full of confidence and working hard in the first period, winning the one on- one battles for the puck to dominate a deeper Oxford team. Tab captain Andrew Ashcroft scored on a powerplay ten minutes in. Rutter added a second at 14.23 to leave the Oxford fans fearing a repeat of last year’s debacle. 2-0 at the 1st intermission. Captain Watt’s teamtalk seemed to change the Blues’ whole attitude. Where in the 1st period Oxford had seemed overawed by the much larger and more physical Light Blues, in the second it was the Dark Blues’ turn to outwork the other team. 37 seconds in, the deficit was halved when Oxford assistant captain Joseph Place converted Guy Régimbald’s set-up. A minute later, with Place occupying two Cambridge defenders in the slot, Régimbald walked out from behind the net all alone and slid a perfect shot past the Cambridge goalie to even the scores. This state of affairs persisted until Coté scored for the Light Blues on the powerplay at 37.19. Going into the final period 3-2 down, Oxford still had it all to do. The first minute and a half of third were taken up by a twoman Oxford powerplay, but marred by two Cambridge oddman rushes. Watt was acrobatic in goal to deny the final nail in the Oxford VM coffin. Cambridge were dispirited, and the fitter, moretalented Blues began to dominate. At 47.12 Régimbald’s crisp crossice pass found rookie blueliner Chris Pettengell, whose heavy wrist-shot through Zetlin-Jones’ screen found the net. For the first time in the 118-year history of the fixture, the Varsity Match was going to overtime: 10 minutes of sudden death play, and if it ended scoreless Cambridge, the holders, would retain the cup. But at the 62 minute mark controversy struck. As Holzman cut to the net with his head down he was hit hard by Ashcroft and knocked unconscious. The TV replay later showed the Light Blue captain making contact with his elbows, and the referees had seen it too. Ashcroft was thrown out of the game. Throughout the match the Oxford top line of Quong, Sproule and Colegate had been magnificent, with little concrete reward. Now was their time. The five minute powerplay had expired, and with two and a half minutes left the situation looked bleak. Mark Sproule picked up Kassen’s pass on the right wing and crossed the blue line with speed. The desperate Tab defence men tried to claw Sproule back as he cut in across the face of goal, turned and shot over the sprawling goalie. The stunned Cambridge players and fans could only look on as the bench cleared and the 500th Oxford goal in Varsity Match play won the Blues the closest match in living memory. Jon Quong received Oxford ‘Man of the Match’ honours, and Sproule the overall game MVP in a game that no-one present will ever forget.ARCHIVE: 2nd Week TT 2003last_img read more

Charter Schools USA Wants Permission To Stay In Indianapolis

first_imgCharter Schools USA Wants Permission To Stay In Indianapolis. Now Is Your Chance To Weigh In FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare By Dylan Peers McCoy  November 22, 2019center_img Indianapolis residents will have the chance Monday to offer input on the fate of three city schools ahead of a decision that could determine if they remain in the hands of a Florida-based charter company.The Indiana Charter Schools Board is expected to decide next month whether to grant charters so the schools can remain with the state-appointed manager, Charter Schools USA. If the board does not grant those charters, the future of the schools is uncertain — state officials could return them to Indianapolis Public Schools, close them, or find another solution.The three schools — Howe and Manual high schools and Emma Donnan Middle School — have been under state control since 2012, and they are expected to transition out of takeover next year. Before the charter board decides whether to approve charters for the schools, Indianapolis Public Schools plans to make a last-minute plea to the state board of education for the return of Donnan, so the district can bring in a new, local manager. But IPS officials have been less clear about what role they hope to play at Howe and Manual.In order for the charter network, known as CSUSA, to continue managing the schools, they must win the endorsement of the charter board. One potential concern is the strikingly high number of students who left Howe and Manual without diplomas, as uncovered in a recent Chalkbeat investigation.Both schools have disproportionately large numbers of students labeled as leaving to home-school, and if those students had been included in the state graduation calculations, graduation rates likely would have plummeted. In the class of 2018, for example, Manual reported 83 graduates, six dropouts, and 60 students who left at some point during their high school years to be home-schooled. But many of those students may not be continuing their education at all, since the state does not track home-schooling.Those numbers signal that “the distinction between home-school and dropout is really disappearing,” said Rachel Coleman, executive director of the Coalition for Responsible Home Education, in an interview with Chalkbeat earlier this year.CSUSA officials told Chalkbeat that parents decide whether to home-school their children and attributed the high numbers to the “high-risk students” the schools educate.The network will need to make the case to the charter board that it is serving students well, and the large numbers of students leaving Howe and Manual without diplomas could be a red flag.Another potential hindrance came up this week. Indianapolis Public Schools abruptly decided to end its existing innovation partnership with CSUSA at Donnan — throwing a wrench in the plan for the collaboration to continue.It’s unclear whether losing the alliance with the district will diminish CSUSA’s chances of gaining approval for its plan from the charter board.“We are still trying to figure out what impact, if any, it has on our decision,” said James Betley, executive director of the Indiana Charter School Board. “It is a moving target right now.”Betley said he is seeking more information from the district about why it wants to cut ties with CSUSA and how proposals from Howe and Manual to lease district buildings for $1 could financially affect IPS.IPS Superintendent Aleesia Johnson, who described the large numbers of students leaving Howe and Manual to home-school as “very concerning,” said at a press briefing Tuesday that leaders are wrestling with what the future of the schools means for the district financially, what the community wants, and how the outcome will impact the stability of families.IPS board member Diane Arnold said that at this point, the decision about the future of Howe and Manual is out of the district’s hands.“We would like to have control of those facilities back,” Arnold said. “Then we will have to decide what the best course of action is — whether we’re looking for new innovation partners or whatever may come.”The charter board will hold a hearing to gather public input at 5:30 p.m. on Monday at Emmerich Manual High School. It is expected to vote on the charters at a meeting on December 13.last_img read more
