Financial Crime is a complex topic that intertwines with other crime types and, which is defined by Interpol, as:
“The term ‘financial crime’ covers a wide range of criminal offences which are generally international in nature.
Closely connected to cybercrime, financial crimes are often committed via the Internet and have a major impact on the international banking and financial sectors – both official and alternative.
Financial crimes affect individuals, companies, organizations and even nations, and have a negative impact on the entire economic and social system through the considerable loss of money incurred.”
Although, these types of crimes have many subtypes, the main branches are listed by Interpol:
- Payment cards;
- Money laundering;
- Counterfeit currency and security documents;
- Social engineering fraud (such as phishing and telecom fraud).
