Warning: a bad literature metaphor coming up.
Not referring to the famous Charles Dickens' novel but the great start we have had for European Cyber Crime and Fraud Investigators in the past three months.
As the protagonist Pip in the Dickens' novel, an orphan facing the reality of life - deceit, fraud, loyalty and disloyalty - we also need to seek allies in the world of fraud. And we are off to a good start.
See, we now have members from 10 countries already! And it's the holiday season when colleagues are on their well deserved breaks from work.
Austria, Denmark, Finland, Greece, The Netherlands, Norway, Italy, Sweden, United Arab Emirates (!) and The United Kingdom are now covered.
A few leading questions to you:
Are you a police officer who needs cooperation with the private sector?
Do you work for a police unit that needs funding for flight and hotel costs in an operational case?
Or do you work for a company that needs a good police contact in another country?
Do you feel like a security orphan in the world of fraud? (You were warned).
We can find you a good contact.
We organize trainings and meetings for you to meet your contacts.
We will break the bureaucratical barriers for you in real cases.
We are building a network of motivated individuals with a passion for secure payments. We will open doors to a more secure Europe.
So, don't be a security orphan. Find a network of allies.
