Report fraud

We are building a new website designed to help you do more online with us and to help us track, respond to and update you about your requests.

We will be gradually moving items to the new website over the coming months and listening to your feedback so that we can make more improvements.

Please use our new site to find the information you need.

Report Fraud Online

Use this form if you suspect someone of committing fraud against Powys County Council:

Reporting fraud online is quick and easy. It helps if you complete as much relevant information as possible as we may not be able to investigate if we do not have enough details.

The information goes directly to the Corporate Fraud Team who deal with all reports of fraud seriously.
