Financial Crime against individuals has reached epidemic proportions in Europe


Investment fraud is one of “the most damaging” aspects of financial crime, with a growing number of investors being scammed out of their life-time savings


The monthly damage caused to European small investors by investment scams is estimated at 1 billion euros per month . This is only a rough estimate, since up to now - 10 years after the beginning of this type of crime - there has been no uniform recording of criminal complaints for this type of crime in the individual European countries..


Investment Scams in Europe

SOME OF OUR REQUESTS

Prevention
  • Public awareness and education campaigns have to be established and launched on a Europe-wide level to draw attention to this type of crime. Legitimate trading websites should be forced to display warnings about the risks of the investment scams on a regular basis.
  • European law for seductive advertising and fraudulent advertisement activities has to be adapted to address responsibilities of social media channels in this respect.
  • Prosecution
  • An independent and decentralised prosecution office within the European Union for such cybercrime fraud of transnational organised criminal organizations with the competence (authority) to investigate, prosecute and bring to justicet crimes against European consumers/retail investors
  • An independent and decentralised prosecution office within the European Union for the co-ordination and supervision of strict anti-money laundering prosecution in Europe.
  • Criminal law has to be amended and modernized on a Europe-wide level with respect to the criminal liability of corporations and the sentencing guidelines of corporations.
