Social Media Policy

The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) communication team manages the @UKSFO Twitter and LinkedIn accounts.

If you follow us, you can expect tweets and shares covering the following:

  • Case updates, including charging decisions, verdicts and opened investigations
  • News stories and press releases
  • Alerts about new publications and speeches

Anyone wishing to report serious fraud, bribery and corruption should do so via our secure reporting form. Anyone who believes that they have been a victim of fraud should contact their local police force or Action Fraud.


Twitter may occasionally be unavailable and the SFO accepts no responsibility for lack of service due to Twitter downtime.
