Jack Wraith MBE, Distinguished Crime Fighter

Until 2014 Jack was the CEO and a Director of The Telecommunications UK Fraud Forum (TUFF) a post he held for 16 years. He will be a keynote speaker at our November meeting, where he will give his advice on how RAG should reach out to law enforcement bodies and help them to co-operate with telcos in the fight against crime.

We were honored that Jack joined the ‘wise heads’ panel that reviewed and closed our summer 2016 conference. The panel was one of the highlights of the event.

Jack was the Chair of The Mobile Industry Crime Action Forum (MICAF) and Executive Secretary to the Communications Crime Strategy Group (CCSG). Through the industry forums that he oversaw, Jack played a central role in preventing and tackling fraud and crime in the telecommunications industry, primarily within the United Kingdom but with partnerships and liaison in a number of foreign jurisdictions.

Jack was also Chairman to a number of Fraud and Crime related committees, within the UK, including Joint Chairmanship of the ACPO Telecommunications Data Communications Group. Through these he developed very close ties with United Kingdom law enforcement agencies and other Government departments on telecommunication fraud and revenue assurance related issues.

Jack has held a number of other Directorships including Director of The London Fraud Forum.

Prior to joining the industry Jack operated as an independent consultant providing support to a four nations telecommunications grouping within NATO as well as providing input to a number of international communication committees based in Brussels.

Since his partial retirement, in 2014, he has taken up a number of voluntary appointments with a number of locally based Kent Charities as well as being appointed as Government and Regulatory Affairs Adviser to Recipero Ltd a company whose aim is to provide Data solutions to detect and prevent theft and fraud in the world’s mobile device communities.

He was appointed as a Member of The British Empire in 1974.
