International Mass-Marketing Fraud Working Group Releases Threat Assessment
The International Mass-Marketing Fraud Working Group has released a threat assessment on international mass marketing fraud. As stated in the report, this assessment was developed in collaboration with the Department of Justice, as well as law enforcement, regulatory, and consumer agencies in Australia, Belgium, Canada, EUROPOL, the Netherlands, Nigeria, and the United Kingdom, to provide governments and the public with a current assessment of the nature and scope of the threat that mass-marketing fraud poses around the world. FinCEN researched Bank Secrecy Act data to identify the extent of SAR reporting relating to mass marketing fraud. The information and analysis in this assessment is current through May 2010.
