Webinar 40/2020: The prevention of and information on individual fraud

Date: 
29 May 2020

This webinar presents the European Crime Prevention Network (EUCPN) toolbox on the prevention of individual frauds, perhaps better known as scams. This entails frauds committed against individuals by individuals or criminal organisations. Increasingly, this type of fraud has become a profitable and cross-border enterprise, prompting some scholars to call these offenders ‘scampreneurs’. Consequently, this type of crime deserves an EU-wide approach. The webinar will introduce some of the key criminal mechanisms and offer ideas for preventive actions.
