Of the six billion quantified by the Guardia di Finanza, over 290 million euros are non-repayable contributions and bank loans backed by guarantees which were illegally received and which led to the denunciation of 2,400 people, at the end of 12,700 checks. The fraud to the health system instead amount to 549 million, and are included in the 3.5 billion damages to the Treasury, while those relating to social security expenditure to 365 million and those to the EU structural funds to 129 million.
