Non-Delivery Fraud (Scams) - Interpol Purple Notice - International Investigative Solutions
Interpol recently issued a Purple Notice alerting member countries on the modus operandi behind non-delivery fraud (scams). In non-delivery fraud, criminals promise highly sought-after goods, collect payment, then never deliver. While the principle is simple, the fraud scheme is often sophisticated and can yield huge profits.
Criminals can adapt a well-established modus operandi to suit any product, from Covid-19 masks during a pandemic to electronics or even everyday items such as paper. The bigger the sale, the bigger the profit. Products are sold by the container load, meaning that payments can easily run into the millions.
Contrary to popular belief, these types of scams aren’t just carried out by lone “wheeler-dealers”. Organized crime groups have gone to great lengths to set up a sophisticated modus operandi involving websites, salespeople, intermediaries and of course, bank accounts. Scams often involve more than one country in order to make victims feel helpless and complicate investigations. Glossy advertisements imitate those of trustworthy businesses, attracting victims with high-quality images, brand names and genuine reference numbers. Criminals approach potential buyers online or in person by infiltrating professional purchasing circles. Fake websites and social media accounts almost identical to those of known businesses offer several ways to make contact with the alleged seller. Online contact forms, phone numbers and email addresses all give the impression of a legitimate customer service centre.
Once contact is made, the sales exercise can begin. Prices for large orders are negotiated and validated by “superiors”. Scammers provide contracts, proforma invoices and paperwork on official letterhead. Fraudsters then ask for an advance payment to secure the merchandise. The payments, which can go from 40% to 100% of the full order depending on the total amount, are made directly into accounts which have been opened under registered (fake) companies.
Once the scammers feel they have been uncovered, they end all contact. Phones are cut off, emails go unanswered and websites are shut down. Victims are left in shock and ashamed, often reluctant to report the fraud to superiors and police. Criminals, on the other hand, move on quickly and start a new fraud with a new product. If one domain is suspended or taken down, other domains are still available to attract new victims. The cycle starts again.

Corporations regularly face a myriad of situations that require investigation and fact finding. Every day, in-house and outside investigators search the globe, collecting facts and evidence for multinational clients in global corporate investigations. The need to conduct internal investigations may also arise from the general duty of the employer and senior management to supervise and control employees and the internal processes within the organization. A thoughtful and carefully structured approach to investigations is essential. Properly executed, internal investigations help to determine (a) if the suspicion of fraud or other illegal activity has merit; (b) who is involved in the wrongdoing and to what degree; (c) what the appropriate internal and external responses should be (including the risks associated to inadequate responses); (d) how to minimize the civil, regulatory and criminal exposure of the corporation, including its decision-makers; (e) what preventive measures apply to preclude repetition of the activity in question; and (f) how to minimize reputational risks. In contrast, improperly executed internal investigations increase the corporation’s potential exposure and the corresponding risks to the management and board of directors
Corporate Investigations are conducted to help protect organizations from Loss or theft of proprietary information, Compromised customer or company information, Abuse or misuse of the network, Liability if network has been used as a launchpad to attack other systems, damaged reputation and CEO Fraud (CEO-Betrug)

What about Dormant Account Fraud - is that possible?
One of the most susceptible areas for fraud in a bank, or financial institution, is the dormant deposit account. Dormant accounts are generally a deposit account that has been inactive for a period of time or an account for which contact with the account holder has been lost. Most banking software systems will code an account as dormant after about a year of inactivity. Officially in Switzerland is an Account dormant after one decade without contact. The main factor that makes these dormant accounts more susceptible to fraud is the lack of customer activity. If a customer is actively using his/her deposit account, the customer is more likely to be monitoring that account.
