The article looks back at a 1993 research report on the investigation of fraud by the police and the public sector. The issues discussed there are reviewed in the light of research undertaken a decade later and within the context of the UK government's 2006 Fraud Review. The Fraud Review confirmed the direction of travel identified by the research but the article asks whether the Review's proposals will - or can - effectively address the implications.
