What is commercial crime & fraud?  see terms of reference/definition on Royal Canadaian Mounted Police in BC website www.bc.rcmp.ca...



"The [RCMP] Commercial Crime Section investigates: Commercial Crime and Major Fraud
This group helps detect and deter criminal activity within the business and securities community at the local/international level. This includes corporate fraud, investment fraud, securities fraud, mass marketing fraud, credit fraud, fraudulent telemarketing and identity theft/fraud.
  • Corporate fraud can include fraud by or against a company. Fraud against a company can happen through misappropriation of corporate assets by a company senior officer or staff. Fraud by a company may be committed by providing incorrect or misleading information to shareholders or regulators - where incorrect information is provided for individual financial gain.
  • Credit Fraud may occur when fraudulent statements or other deceptive practices are made to a lender in order to secure financing.
  • Mass Marketing Fraud includes fraud committed by telephone, mail and Internet. Some of the more common schemes used to defraud victims are: fraudulent prize and lottery schemes, fraudulent loan offers and credit card schemes. [fr. bc.rcmp.ca....}
  • Investment Fraud is any fraud associated with investments impacting a person or company.

Counterfeiting
This group helps suppress the manufacture and distribution of counterfeit currency and payment cards within Canada. The Commercial Crime Unit typically investigates when there is either organized crime involvement, substantial value or financial losses, a high degree of criminal sophistication or a requirement for special technical or investigative expertise satisfying public or national interest.

Federal Statute Enforcement
Commercial Crime Sections investigate allegations of corruption of domestic public officials, and the crimes relating to integrity of national programs.

Project Emptor
Project Emptor, a multi-agency, cross-border task force led by the RCMP for the purposes of investigating and preventing international mass marketing fraud.  Project Emptor operates out of the RCMP  "E"  Division Commercial Crime offices located in Surrey, British Columbia.  Partners include the Business Practices and Consumer Protection Authority, The Competition Bureau, The United States Postal Service, the FBI, and the Federal Trade Commission.  This Task Force has operated since 1998."
