Farmers warned to be wary of fraudsters who target their fresh EU funds this month using details available online

Farmers have been reminded to be extra vigilant against potential fraudsters targeting their EU subsidies. This month, farmers start to receive large funds through the Basic Payment Scheme, and criminals are able to access publicly available data detailing the recipients' names and the amount paid. Industry-funded anti-fraud group FFA UK has warned that other business and organisations that use farmland, such as B&Bs, local authorities and manufacturers that also receive money via the scheme, could become targets.
