Academy of European Law organizes
The Life Cycle of e-Evidence
November 7-8, 2017
Credit card fraud is a highly profitable criminal activity which involves the unauthorised taking of another person’s credit card information for the purpose of using the money available on an account or removing funds from it. To respond effectively to this threat, cooperation between law enforcement authorities and the private sector is crucial.
This seminar will look at the different forms of payment fraud, at concrete examples of credit card fraud and at the key role played by the exchange of information between the public and private sectors.
– Credit card fraud: a challenge for the application of traditional fraud provisions
– Online auction fraud (cases, technical solutions and legal responses)
– Challenges in investigating and prosecuting internet fraud: phishing (including also dummy corporations and boiler room ops)
– Fraud committed with electronic means of payment: experiences in EU Member States
– Involvement of the internet industry in fighting online financial crimes
About the project
