The Role of Professional Enablers and Money Launderers in the Facilitation of Organised Fraud in the UK

The Institute for Criminal Policy Research (ICPR) at Birkbeck, University of London has been funded by The Dawes Trust (an independent charitable trust) to undertake research examining The Role of Professional Enablers and Money Launderers in the Facilitation of Organised Fraud in the UK.

As part of our study, we are conducting an independent survey to gain a better understanding of how professionals are targeted and recruited by organised crime groups (OCGs), the regulatory response to the threat of OCGs and the preventative measures aimed at safeguarding you as a professional.

The survey is divided into four sections, and will take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. Your participation is anonymous and confidential. We do not collect any identifying details (e.g. your name, organisation or IP address). Absolutely no-one will know that you have taken part, neither the research team nor any regulatory body. This research is supported by a Steering Group of which both the Law Society and the Solicitor's Regulation Authority (SRA) are members. The Steering Group also includes representatives of City of London Police, the Home Office, the National Crime Agency and Ministry of Justice, the Financial Conduct Authority, CiFAS, Victim Support, the National Police Chiefs Council and the Serious Fraud Office. All Steering Group organisations fully support the research we are undertaking, but will not see individual responses.

Please only take part if you want to. Choosing not to take part will not disadvantage you in any way. If you decide to take part, you are free to skip any questions you don't want to answer.
