Marketing Manager Global Loss Adjusters
I worked alongside Peter as his Personal Assistant for two years at Cunningham Lindsey. He was then Head of Investigation Services, with responsibility for over 100 colleagues.
A degree of my own career success can be attributed to his strengths as a mentor - he believed in investing in the development of his direct reports, giving them scope to learn and progress. Nearly everyone within his team went on to get a promotion of some sort or advance their career.
Peter is a natural communicator - a talent I particularly admire in my capacity as a marketer. He has a respected presence on LinkedIn and his posts often receive the highest levels of engagement.
Peter has always attracted respect from his peers and clients alike. He exudes gravitas yet is exceptionally personable - a rare combination that makes him much more than just the boss, but a true leader.
I have the fondest memories of working with Peter and it’s been great to track his own career which continues to go from strength to strength.
Software Engineer who took our mentoring program
I had approached Peter back in late Sept 2021 when I had come across his post on mentoring. At that time, I had spots of understanding and experiences surrounding financial crime, cybercrime and cyber security. Professionally speaking, these were realms I aspired to be a part of in the future. I had known that these realms were, in many respects, interlinked. The struggle I had was to see each area's specialty and limitations clearly. That was where Peter had helped tremendously. He helped me see that there were terms that are now interchangeably used and that the lines were indeed getting a bit blurred, especially between cyber and financial crime. In addition, when it came to investigating these types of crime, what interview questions that had to be asked to victims and the accused made differences as well. I learnt that there are differences in investigating and collecting intelligence for both forms of crime. Furthermore, I learnt that it was natural to bring in some form of bias as I did that myself in a case study.
For instance, I had kept thinking that a fraudulent address was a programming mistake because I was there imagining that error in the HTML file. That was a crucial pointer I took away with me, given my own voluntary experience where I'm applying these intelligence gathering skills. Alongside the technical discussions, we had ventured into the psychology and the social issues that occur in these spaces that engage in such crimes as well.
My mentorship period with Peter had been holistic and productive, and it was a pleasure being a mentee of his for the last 4 months.
Cyber Security Manager - Energy Provider
If you are thinking about education in the areas of Cyber Crime, Fraud and OSINT then I would highly recommend taking one of Peter's courses.
He mentored me over a number of weeks, covering these topics, which was not only presented in an easy to understand format, but also in depth and informative.
NB* Some of the information that he teaches you are unlikely to learn anywhere else.
Thankyou for giving me the knowledge to be able advise my clients in these areas with authority and confidence.
Financial Crime Manager Jaja Finance
Peter delivered a brilliant Fraud Talk to my employer for International Fraud Awareness Week; “What happened when a fraud investigator went behind enemy lines to interview cyber-criminals”. The talk was very well delivered and informative, my colleagues found it very interesting and it certainly opened everyone's eyes to the dangers of fraud and cyber attacks.

CILEx Branch Chair
CILEx Lancashire Branch held another of its bi-monthly meetings last night and with regards to the speaker, I for one was disappointed...disappointed that we did not know about Peter Taylor MIAATI earlier!
Peter brought a dynamic, engaging and enthusiastic approach to his speaking engagement last night and if it hadn’t have been for the limited time we had this meeting could have lasted hours for me!
An engaging speaker and interactive workshop already has me looking at when we can have ‘The Fraud Guy’ return. His stories had me hooked but I think the Branch only experienced the tip of the iceberg with regards to what Peter could teach us about Fraud... speaking of icebergs it got me wondering if the Titanic did really hit that Iceberg or if there was an element of fraud (I’ve checked and it seems legitimate).
If anyone is considering booking Peter to give your business a talk (or even if you’re not considering it)...book him.
You will not be disappointed! Thank you Fraud Guy!
Brett Johnson - Former Cyber Criminal and FBI Most Wanted
It is a rare thing when I can say that someone is as well versed in fraud as I am. Peter is that man. He is one of the most well versed people I have had the pleasure of meeting when it comes to countering fraud. He understands the tools, the technology, and the underlying dynamics of both real world and online fraud. More than that, Peter is one of those few people on the planet who truly understands people. He has the ability to quickly determine the mindset of a criminal and act to counter such.
Peter says he is "The Fraud Guy". He certainly is. We need more people like him..
Insurance Fraud Manager
"Peter Taylor is a highly professional specialist in complex fraud investigation work. When I employed Peter's team to work on complex fraud investigation work I expected his team to be well led, but the bonus was Peter's own in-depth knowledge of how the fraudsters operate and how to catch them. I would relish the opportunity to work with him again."
"Peter Taylor provided me with some excellent consultancy when I was working to define technical claims & fraud management processes at Barclays. He has an in-depth knowledge of the industry and brings a great personal touch to the work he does with colleagues across the business. A pleasure to work with."
National Claims Manager
"Having worked with Peter Taylor during my time at Cunningham Lindsey I got to appreciate his technical expertise, insight and innovation in the detection and prevention of insurance fraud. With the greatest of respect to all my other associates who specialise in the fraud arena, Peter is the expert I would always turn to first for his advice and guidance when dealing with this subject. I have no doubt that as a consultant many in the insurance and legal professions now have access to a true expert in his field."
Director, Loss Adjusting
"I have worked with Peter Taylor on and off over the last 20 years and have the highest regard for him in the field of fraud investigation where he has few equals. Such was my confidence in PTC’s ability that I had no hesitation in engaging him to review our fraud strategy and processes and, in less than 3 months, he has helped us reshape our entire approach to identifying and investigating suspicious claims. I now believe we have a fraud offering that is second to none and few people could have delivered this within the timescale which includes providing training to all internal staff."
