The Crown Prosecution Service maintains a central record of the number of prosecutions it conducts for fraud and/or forgery offences; however, it is not possible to identify which of these offences were conducted, in whole or in part, through the telephone. To obtain this information would require a manual file examination which would incur a disproportionate cost.
