A disbanded Auckland budgeting service that received government funding is being investigated for fraud.

The Otara Budgeting Service has ceased operating and was removed from the register of Incorporated Societies this month.

A police spokeswoman has confirmed the police are investigating the service.

She said no charges had been laid and would not say whether the investigation was because of a complaint.
