Overview

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.

Handpicked and edited by 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.
