Internet Fraud Casebook The World Wide Web of Deceit


Web scams targeting the unemployed. Computer fraud. Online auction fraud. Market manipulation schemes. While the Internet offers a global marketplace for consumers and businesses, it also presents endless potential for crooks and scammers. The same scams found through the mail and phone have crept their way onto the Internet and into e-mail, with new variations of cyber scams emerging all the time.

Internet Fraud Casebook: The World Wide Web of Deceit presents the collected insights of some of the most experienced fraud examiners around the world. Handpicked and edited by Dr. Joseph Wells, the founder and Chairman of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) — the world's leading anti-fraud organization — this collection of revealing case studies sheds new light into the dark corners of online fraud.

Some of the 41 cases in Internet Fraud Casebook include:

  • "From Russia with Love?," Ernesto F. Rojas
  • "Dangerous Diet," Nancy E. Jones
  • "A Business within a Business," Alan Greggo
  • "The eBay-Fraud Brothers," Jerry Buchleitner
  • "The G.I. Hacker," Bruce L. Owdley
  • "The Business of Making Money," Bill Maloney
  • "Wire Transfers from Nowhere," Kenneth C. Citarella and Laura A. Forbes

Each case in this indispensable casebook explores various kinds of Internet fraud as well as their assorted sub-schemes: phishing, online auction fraud, security breaches, counterfeiting, and others. In addition, each case offers an informative and entertaining look into the complex social factors behind fraudulent behavior on the Web. The observations of each fraud examiner, drawn from years of practical experience, provide readers with invaluable perspectives, many of which have never before been conveyed publicly.

Forming a comprehensive picture of the many types of Internet fraud and how they are analyzed across industries and throughout the world, Internet Fraud Casebook equips you with authoritative, proven investigative and preventive guidance.
