The coronavirus lockdown has changed all our lives and it’s having a profound and clear impact on crime. In some areas of the UK police forces are reporting that crime has decreased by more than 20% when compared with the same period last year. But Home Secretary Priti Patel has warned that although total crime figures have dropped, as people follow advice to stay at home, criminals are adapting to take advantage of the ongoing pandemic. She highlighted how fraudsters are exploiting coronavirus fears to carry out a variety of new scams which have already made them over £2million.
