It is the first one. As announced by the Ministry of Labor in a release, a computer training organization and its director were convicted of personal training account fraud (CPF) by the criminal court of Saint-Omer (Pas-de-Calais), this Tuesday, September 20. Suspected of having organized, in 2020 and 2021, fake training sessions financed thanks to the CPF, the squad will have to pay more than three million euros to the Caisse des dépôts, the entity that manages the personal training account. Its leader was also sentenced to three years in prison, prohibited from carrying out a training activity for 5 years and from running a company for 10 years.
Such a case of CPF misuse is far from rare. in his last annual report, published at the end of July, the Bercy financial intelligence unit (Tracfin) highlighted the outbreak of fraud attempts on the personal training account. Thus, Tracfin received from Caisse des dépôts and certain banks no less than 116 suspicious transaction reports related to CPF fraud in 2021, compared to just 10 the previous year. In total, the possible damages amount to 43.2 million euros, compared to 7.8 million in 2020.
