The Home Office remit for fraud is fraud against individuals and businesses. We do not hold figures for estimated total cost of fraud for 1984, 1994, 2004, and 2014.
We do have the published estimate for the 2015/16 total cost of fraud against individuals: £4.7 billion. This figure can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-economic-and-social-costs-of-crime.
