UK National Crime Agency has released a photos of 10 alleged con-artists wanted in relation to fraud cases across Britain. The album was compiled ahead of fresh figures that are expected to reveal the huge scale of fraud in the UK.

Among these suspected fraudsters is 41-year-old Nigerian Bayo Lawrence Anoworin. He is wanted by Lincolnshire Police over an alleged scam by a gang that stole more than £12million from NHS Trusts in the UK and Guernsey between January 2011 and July 2012.
"The annual losses to the UK from fraud are estimated to be more than £190 billion. Behind this headline figure lie the actions of criminals like the wanted fraudsters highlighted in this appeal, who have caused distress and loss to people and businesses up and down the country. Law enforcement cannot tackle this problem alone. It is only by working together, individuals, law enforcement, Government and the private sector that we can protect the UK against fraud. It is important that anyone able to provide information on the ten fraudsters we are highlighting today takes the opportunity to pass that information to law enforcement to help bring them to justice" - Donald Toon, director of the NCA's Economic Crime Command said.
