Security Guard Fraud exposed by undercover BBC researchers

March 23, 2015

A BBC investigation has found that thousands of licenced security guards could be working in the UK after buying qualifications for cash enabling them to apply for fraudulent SIA licences.

Jobseekers must sit mandatory exams to get a Security Industry Authority card. Undercover researchers found colleges happy to sit or forge exams for untrained students for a fee.

The programme will be aired at 7.30 on Monday, 23 March.
