Good news – there is no more benefit fraud

ACT released:

“2016/17 saw 450 prosecutions carried out, this was down to 60 by 2020/21 and 2021/22 is set to be even lower with only 30 recorded so far.

“Somehow despite plummeting prosecution rates, on investigations has increased from approx. $2.9 million per quarter in 2016/17 to $4.2 million per quarter in 2021/22.

This is great. The level of benefit fraud must have fallen by a massive 85%, as prosecutions have fallen by 85%. This is a terrific achievement by to have almost eliminated benefit fraud.

assume this is the case. I mean it is unthinkable that benefit fraud is still occurring at the same or greater levels, and instead no one is prosecuted for it. I am sure that is not the case.
