The Home Office does not hold the information requested. The Home Office collects recorded fraud data from the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau including fraud classified as NFIB90 which is ‘Other fraud (not covered elsewhere)’. Number plate frauds will be recorded in this category, but we cannot separate out these offences from the data we hold.

The ONS publish recorded fraud data in the quarterly ‘Crime in England and Wales’ bulletin, which can be found in Table A5 of the Appendix Tables:
