Fraud in schools: Don’t be the next victim

Written by: Dave Verma | Published:

With more than 250 schools falling victim to fraud last year, anti-fraud expert Dave Verma is urging headteachers to be on their guard.

“A total of 258 schools were victims of fraud last year,” explained Dave Verma MSc, an Anti-Fraud Consultant.

“Major losses can occur when fraudsters exploit a lack of awareness coupled with an absence of effective fraud prevention and detecting strategies.”

Dave worked as an Anti Fraud Manager for more than 20 years, he lectured at the prestigious Detective Training School at Hendon for 11 years, and was awarded the Borough Commanders Award for partnership working as well as a special commendation for his services to the Detective Training School.
Dave has developed a suite of school anti-fraud courses and ID verification courses.

He also undertakes financial health checks for schools which are designed to quickly empower headteachers with key recommendations about the real risks in their schools.
