I m In 2013 the number of fuel fraud was still over 91,000. The cases of fraud thus develop roughly parallel to the petrol price. As the fuel price goes down, so does the gasoline theft.
Berlin is the Mecca of petrol thieves. Statistically speaking, every petrol station in the federal capital is haunted by fuel fraudsters 24 times a year. This puts the city 265% above the 115 city average of seven offenses. For 2014, according to the Study registered a total of 7,006 fraud cases in Berlin. Hamburg, Cologne, Frankfurt and Dortmund follow in second place.
The clearing-up rate is also surprisingly low. In Berlin, for example, only 22% of all cases are cleared up. In Hamburg, the clarification rate is around 36%. The investigators in Wiesbaden are particularly successful, where over 72% of fraudsters are caught.
