Fighting Fraud: An Insight Into NCA’s Use Of Non-Conviction Based Powers

Fighting Fraud: An Insight Into NCA’s Use Of Non-Conviction Based Powers

Bank of Cyprus is presenting the digital “3rd Cyprus Anti-fraud Conference” on Tuesday, 15 December 2020. This year’s event will welcome a number of high caliber speakers to discuss the newest challenges facing the anti-fraud community and evaluate how one can better protect their business from fraud.


Among this year’s speakers is Kevin Humphreys, a Tax and Forensic Investigations Consultant at Integrated Dispute Resolution in the UK. Kevin joined HM Revenue & Customs in 1987 where he spent 20 years specialising in company, individual and partnership tax enquiries. In 2007, he joined the National Crime Agency (NCA) and for 10 years led a team investigating acquisitive crime cases, including fraud, money laundering and drug trafficking, using civil recovery and tax powers under the UK’s Proceeds of Crime Act. Now, in the private sector, Kevin specialises in forensic investigation of fraud, complex business disputes and HMRC tax enquiries. He is a member of The London Fraud Forum and Fraud Advisory Panel. In his presentation, Kevin will provide an overview of how the NCA uses Civil Recovery and Tax Powers to tackle illicit finances deriving from fraud. He will cover how the NCA identifies cases in the UK, and demonstrate what specialist capabilities and techniques are deployed to seize criminal assets. Kevin will refer to sanitised case studies to highlight effectiveness and success.
