Social Media Policy

The Serious Fraud Office press office manages the @UKSFO twitter account.

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

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

We do not handle reports of fraud via Twitter. 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.


We don’t automatically follow back new followers. Being followed back or re-tweeted does not imply endorsement of any kind.


This account is managed during office hours, Monday to Friday (not including public holidays). We may occasionally tweet outside of office hours.


Twitter may occasionally be unavailable and the SFO accepts no responsibility for lack of service due to Twitter downtime. We do not respond to individual tweets.
