The Home Office does not hold the information on the proportion of online fraud and cybercrime that goes unreported. The ONS Crime Survey for England and Wales captures information on the number of fraud and cyber crime incidents experienced by individuals and also collects information on the proportion of these incidents that were reported to the police or Action Fraud. These data can be found on the ONS website (https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/crimeandjustice#datasets) in the ‘Crime in England and Wales: Experimental tables’ – see Table E7.
