This FOI is directed to the National Document Fraud Unit, part of the Home Office.
Dear National Document Fraud Unit,
I would like to request a breakdown of the fraudulent identity documents detected by UK authorities since 2010.
For each year since 2010 I would like a breakdown of the type of fraudulent document, and the number of those documents that were detected.
If possible, I would also like further breakdowns by the type of fraud. For example, genuine passports that have been tampered with, entirely fake passports, ID cards that have been tampered with, or entirely fake ID cards.
