Should the police take fraud far more seriously?

I can assure you that the Met take all reports of fraud seriously. It is the responsibility of the Action Fraud, within the City of London Police to log all reports of fraud. If viable lines of enquiry are identified, then the report will be passed to the Met. The Met provides a dedicated service to identifying offenders and bringing them to justice. Throughout the process, whether handled by Action Fraud or the Met, victims are kept updated with developments and offered victim support through MOPAC’s Integrated Victim and Witness support service as well as the Economic Crime Victim Care Unit which is part-funded by MOPAC.
