Mission and objective
Fraud Help Desk aims to protect citizens against fraud and other financially motivated crimes committed in or from the Netherlands. We do this by raising awareness among individuals and businesses and by guiding fraud victims to agencies that can help them further.
Our goal is to make Dutch citizens and businesses more resilient. This is done by making people more aware of fraud in all its manifestations. To this end, we’ve published the Fraud Help Desk information brochure (in Dutch).
As the national anti-fraud hotline and reporting centre, the Fraud Help Desk forms part of Stichting Aanpak Financieel-Economische Criminaliteit in Nederland.
Set up to tackle financial and economic crime in the Netherlands and known by its acronym SAFECIN, this foundation was established on 7 October 2003. It is listed in the Trade Register of the Chamber of Commerce in Arnhem under number 09138148.
A second key pillar of SafeCin is the Advertising Fraud Support Centre, which constitutes the Dutch national assistance and reporting centre for entrepreneurs when it comes to such matters as advertising fraud and fake invoice scams.
