Government theme tax and benefit fraud
Fraud is a problem that affects all of society. It costs money and fraudsters unlawfully obtain grants, benefits, student finance, income-related support and other public funds at the expense of people who really need them. Measures to combat fraud also cost money, money that could otherwise be spent on health care, education, roads and other amenities that benefit everyone. The Dutch government therefore takes action to combat fraud. Ministries work together in carrying out a range of measures.

Government theme Identity fraud
Identity fraud is when criminals use forged or stolen identity information, for instance to buy goods in someone else’s name and avoid having to pay. People smugglers, drug traffickers and terrorists also use stolen identity information. Identity fraud is increasing, especially online. Government, businesses and the public are all helping to tackle it. Government authorities are working together to investigate identity fraud, and members of the public should take care when sharing personal details.
Government theme Billing mistakes and fraud in the care sector
When people make mistakes or commit fraud relating to healthcare claims and bills, it costs the community money. Confidence in the healthcare system goes down, too. That’s why the government is working with care organisations to reduce billing mistakes and fraud by simplifying the rules, catching fraudsters faster and punishing them hard.
