95 e-commerce fraudsters arrested in international operation

95 professional fraudsters and members of internet-based criminal networks suspected of online fraud activities were arrested during the 2018 e-Commerce Action (eComm 2018), a joint law enforcement operation supported by 28 countries1 from 4 to 15 June 2018. The main goal was to target online fraud through a coordinated law enforcement action within the European Union (EU) and beyond, followed by an awareness-raising campaign. This action also marks the start of several investigations with more arrests expected in the next few months. The activity was inspired by a similar UK pilot conducted in collaboration with Visa.
