Anti-Fraud Hotline Print E-mail

THE City has set up an Anti-Fraud Hotline that handles allegations of fraud, corruption, theft and other crimes of dishonesty committed against it.

Reporting fraud is everyone’s responsibility – fraudulent behaviour affects us all through increased bills and dangerous electrical connections, among others.

If you suspect or are aware of fraud or corruption within the city, call 0800 002 587.

All allegations are thoroughly investigated and, where warranted, followed up with the full force of the law. All calls are treated in the strictest confidence and the callers may remain anonymous.
