The United Kingdom Has Already Accepted This, But Now The United States Is Feeling It Too!
Fraud Set To Be Upgraded As A Threat To National Security
The United States Government and the UK Government plan will see the crime reclassified and treated as seriously as terrorism and civil emergencies
Fraud is to be reclassified as a threat to national security under the UK government plans that will force police chiefs to devote more officers to solving the crime. We also need to see that realization find a home in the United States!
Fraud Should Be Upgraded As A Threat To National Security
Fraud is to be reclassified as a threat to national security as part of government plans to force police chiefs to deploy more officers to solve crimes.
It will be given the same status as terrorism, with chiefs & sheriffs tasked with increasing resources and pooling capabilities to fight a fraud epidemic that now accounts for 30 percent of all crime in the United States (but is likely more since so few victims report these crimes.)
It will be added to the Strategic Police Requirement, meaning ministers will require the armed forces to treat fraud as a top priority alongside terrorism, but also public disorder, civil emergencies, serious and organized crime, cyber-attacks, and child sexual abuse.
The move comes as the government prepares to unveil its new scamScam A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime - is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost. strategy this month after police were heavily criticized for ignoring their impact on victims.
Calls For A Quicker And Better Response
Only one in 1,000 crimes is solved, and with police departments deploying so few officers to investigate these crimes it is little doubt why these crimes are exploding.
SCARS estimates that approximately 50% of these cases can lead to a positive outcome for their victims. Either through sitting down a money muleMoney Mule A money mule sometimes called a "smurfer," is a person who transfers money acquired illegally (e.g., stolen) in person, through a courier service, or electronically, on behalf of others (usually criminals that they are knowingly or unknowingly affiliated). Typically, the mule is paid for services with a small part of the money transferred - but not always. Mules may or may not be aware that they are performing these actions. Money mules are often dupes recruited online for what they think is legitimate employment, not aware that the money they are transferring is the product of crime. The money is transferred from the mule's account to the scam operator, typically in another country. Similar techniques are used to transfer illegal merchandise. Mules can be prosecuted for numerous crimes., recovering money or cryptocurrency, and re-establishing trust in their communities.
In The UK
The task of overhauling the police response has been given to Chief Superintendent Nik Adams, the commander who coordinates white-collar and cybercrimeCybercrime Cybercrime is a crime related to technology, computers, and the Internet. Typical cybercrime are performed by a computer against a computer, or by a hacker using software to attack computers or networks. at the City of London Police, the leading fraud force in England and Wales.
In an interview with The Telegraph, he highlighted the devastating impact of the crime, citing data showing fraud puts the lives of at least 300 people at risk each year. That means that according to them, one person may be committing suicide a day in the UK. But always remember that government never has real numbers, just the 1 to 3% that report.
“That’s a frightening number,” he said. “Data from 300 people a year is urgently being passed to their local policeLocal Police The Local Police is your first responder in most countries. In most English-speaking countries and in Europe report to them first. In other countries look for your national cybercrime police units to report scams to. In the U.S., Canada, & Australia, you must report to the local police first. force to initiate some sort of equivalent to a 999 security response because someone is at such a critical point that they are at potential risk of suicide and self-harm as a result of this crime.”
Revision Of The UK’s Action FraudActionFraud Action Fraud is the UK’s national reporting centre for fraud and cybercrime where you should report fraud if you have been scammed, defrauded or experienced cyber crime in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. WEBSITE LINK
A key part of the overhaul in the UK will be an overhaul of Action Fraud, the much-criticized agency housed within the City of London Police. Ministers and police chiefs are still debating whether her reputation is so bad that she needs to be renamed.
Ch. Supt Adams acknowledged that current technology “isn’t doing what we want” as too much intelligence analysis of complex scamsScams A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime - is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that.

A scam is a crime even if no money was lost. is still done manually and takes longer than officials wanted.
As part of a £30million government injection, a new artificial intelligenceArtificial intelligence Artificial intelligence (AI) is wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence. Machine learning is a subset of Artificial Intelligence. computer system is being built to act as the ‘mastermind’ to analyze and ‘stitch together’ all scams in the UK to identify the criminals behind them. It should be on the market next year.
Ch. Supt Adams said: “Huge investments are being made in a new action cheating system to take over calls and crime on board. A huge investment in the analytical skills behind it and a huge investment in the victim support service that has now been built up over several years.”
He said scams are now so sophisticated and global that, for example, a victim may think they’re being tricked by a US soldier when in fact they’re a Ghana-based criminalCriminal A criminal is any person who through a decision or act engages in a crime. This can be complicated, as many people break laws unknowingly, however, in our context, it is a person who makes a decision to engage in unlawful acts or to place themselves with others who do this. A criminal always has the ability to decide not to break the law, or if they initially engage in crime to stop doing it, but instead continues..
“We hope that technology will be better at scraping through all this digital information to connect the dots, recognize patterns and therefore prioritize certain investigations in a more streamlined and effective way in the future,” he said.
“White-collar Crime Teams” Set Up & Focus On The UK
All fraud cases are reported to UK’s Action Fraud or its rebranded version, which helps determine if it is large and serious enough for investigations to be directed by the National Crime Agency, newly reinforced regional police teams, or local forces.
Ten regional fraud squads, so-called “economic crime teams”, were set up with 96 of the 118 officers recruited so far. They replicate the structure of the 10 regional organized crime units.
“We will be managing the most serious and complex cases at the regional level, while also doing all of this work to support local police white-collar crime teams to ensure they are equipped and able to conduct local investigations,” said Ch Support Adams.
He said that even with the current system, 90 percent of all fraud investigations are completed within two years, cutting the time victims have had to wait for justice from “five, seven, 10 years.”
Ch Supt Adams said improved banking technology has now caught 65 percent of unauthorized payment scams, but this has led to an “exponential” rise in more sophisticated groomingGrooming Grooming is a form of setting up a victim for a scam or other crime by befriending and establishing an emotional connection with the victim, and sometimes the family, to lower the victim's inhibitions with the objective of the scam or criminal activity. Grooming includes the development of a trust relationship between the criminal and the victim, getting the victims to the point where they can be more completely manipulated. scams.
Criminals collected personal data over weeks or months, which gave them the “apparent legitimacy” to sneak into people’s lives.
“Our efforts must be to dismantle these types of elaborate operations and invest immense sums in the types of campaigns to raise victims’ awareness of how this manipulation might manifest itself,” he said.
Criminals Diversify Into Fraud
Ch. Supt Adams added that criminals are increasingly turning to fraud due to the higher risks posed by traditional crimes such as burglary.
“Now, as a criminal, why would you go out at four in the morning and try to break into someone’s house while they’re sleeping, with all the forensic risks and opportunities and the minimal gain you get from a single crime?
“Why would you engage in this type of activity when you can go to a web platform and buy a tool that will send hundreds of phishing text messages to people?
“You just need a few people responding to this technology through this technology to give you an opportunity to make a significant amount of money.”
According To The Atlantic Council:
From bank fraud to malwareMalware Short for "malicious software," this term means computer viruses and other types of programs that cybercriminals use to disrupt or access your computer, typically with the aim of gathering sensitive files and accounts. to romance scams, cybercrime is everywhere. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s 2021 Internet Crime Report cited $7 billion in cybercrime-related losses, double the losses reported in 2019. The totality of these losses has a major impact on the US economy, in addition to the lives of affected individuals and businesses that may watch their bank accounts drained and confidential information stolen.
But cybercrime is far from a purely economic problem; real national security concerns are wrapped up in the issue as well. Just as cybercriminals learn from each other, state hacking groups learn from cybercriminals, and vice versa. Cybercriminal infrastructure and even cybercriminals themselves have been coopted by governments in the past, and there is evidence of states potentially acquiring tooling from the cybercriminal underground.
Cybercrime is, of course, not a uniquely US problem. Like with all forms of crime, cybercriminals seek to connect with and learn from each other. Criminal forums, marketplaces, group chats, and even Facebook pages are watering holes for this underground economy, allowing threat actors to adapt techniques to their unique environments and targeting all around the world. British fraudsters have targeted customers’ sensitive personal information online in order to commit tax fraud. Brazilian malware developers have manipulated electronic invoices issued in the country to their names. Financially-motivated threat actors have targeted Australian superannuation accounts.

The New Direction
According to think tank researchers and experts:
“To understand how cybercrime impacts national security, it is important to have a proper understanding of the motivations of cybercriminals and adversaries alike. There also may be substantial overlap with the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) employed by various threat actors, regardless of motivation. Cybercrime is often financially motivated. However, the same threat actors that are monetizing initial access to a network may also be selling that access to a state-sponsored adversary, whether they know it or not. State-sponsored adversaries may be employing proxiesProxies A VPN (also known as a proxy) is an app or connection method that keeps your internet connection private, whether you're connecting to unsafe public Wi-Fi or your network at home. Having a layer of security that blocks people from watching you browse helps keep you safe online, no matter where you connect from. Virtual private networks protect you by creating an encrypted "tunnel" that all of your device's data travels through on its way to the internet via a proxy server or service. Encryption turns words and data, like text files, into a secret code. If someone tries to read encrypted data without the password, they'll see random gibberish. to deflect attribution attempts, thereby providing plausible deniability. The same TTPs that are often associated with less sophisticated cybercrime—social engineeringSocial Engineering Social engineering is the psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. It is used as a type of confidence trick for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or system access, it differs from a traditional "con" in that it is often one of many steps in a more complex fraud scheme. It has also been defined as "any act that influences a person to take any action that may or may not be in their best interests.", credential stealing malware, brute-forcing or credential stuffing—are also effective in state-sponsored attacks that can have a larger impact on national security.”
“Cybercrime impacts national security in different ways, including by offering a fertile ground for organized crime and hostile nation states to obtain and launder illicitillicit Illicit means something that is not legally permitted or authorized under the law; unlicensed; unlawful. It can also mean disapproved of or not permitted for moral or ethical reasons. profits; threatening the economic stability of households, enterprises and governments; and, in some cases, disrupting supply chains and leaving critical sectors paralyzed. The paradigm shift ‘from online criminal activity to national security threat’ was bolstered by the recent ransomwareRansomware Ransomware is a type of malware from cryptovirology that threatens to publish the victim's personal data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. While some simple ransomware may lock the system so that it is not difficult for a knowledgeable person to reverse, more advanced malware uses a technique called cryptoviral extortion. It encrypts the victim's files, making them inaccessible, and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them. In a properly implemented cryptoviral extortion attack, recovering the files without the decryption key is an intractable problem – and difficult to trace digital currencies such as paysafecard or Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that are used for the ransoms, making tracing and prosecuting the perpetrators difficult. Ransomware attacks are typically carried out using a Trojan virus disguised as a legitimate file that the user is tricked into downloading or opening when it arrives as an email attachment. However, one high-profile example, the WannaCry worm, traveled automatically between computers without user interaction. attacks against Colonial Pipeline and Kaseya that prompted the classification of ransomware as a national security matter. The nationwide Conti ransomware attacks against Costa Rica’s public and private sector, and the country’s subsequent state of emergency declaration, is another clear example.”
“For over forty years, cybercrime has presented the risk of unauthorized access to national security information and associated information systems. Today, this risk is heightened by the growth of highly profitable transnational cybercriminal networks. These transnational criminal networks have both conducted and enabled highly disruptive cyber incidents that have impacted the operation of critical infrastructure and essential services. These criminal networks may serve as proxies for malicious foreign government activities or provide a degree of plausible deniability to foreign government security services for their own malicious cyber activities.”
“Cybercrime is borderless, and combatting it requires the widest level of international cooperation possible, encompassing stakeholders from government, law enforcement, and the private sector. As an example of this, most successful law enforcement counter-cybercrime operations have benefitted from internationally-coordinated frameworks, while many private sector companies have acquired a leading role in disrupting and providing investigative support to the public sector.”
“The types of ways to steal someone’s identity have changed significantly over the last few years. Whereas username and password may have once been sufficient to gain access to an individual’s account and personal information, increased user awareness, multi-factor authentication, and cybersecurity have mitigated these types of attacks. The introduction of log shops that sell browser fingerprints, new methods of bypassing multi-factor authentication—like social engineering, SIM swapping, and more automated bypass methods like OTP bots, for example—all demonstrate the evolution of identity fraud that could result in account takeoverAccount Takeover Account Takeover (ATO) are the unauthorized access of a user’s account in order to steal identity credentials, execute a fraudulent transaction or engage in varying types of abuse..”
“Synthetic Identity FraudSynthetic identity fraud Synthetic identity theft, or synthetic identity fraud, occurs when a criminal creates an identity instead of stealing an existing one. The scam involves mixing real Social Security numbers, or fake numbers, with other pieces of information—names, addresses, and birthdates—to put together an entirely new identity, often using partially fake identity information. In contrast, the more familiar form of identity theft involves using the actual name, Social Security number, and other personal data of a single victim. (SIF). This crime involves leveraging legitimate personally identifiable information (PII) to create a false identity that can be used for several malicious purposes, including establishing lines of credit or committing financial fraud. During the COVID-19 pandemic, threat actors would leverage stolen PII to take advantage of the US government relief programs, like the CARES Act. Some agencies estimate that over $100 billion in taxpayer money was stolen by fraudsters stealing or creating fake identities to claim unemployment benefits from state workforce agencies.
But Is There A Solution?
“The United States and its allies can encourage cooperation by enabling more public-private collaboration and incorporating industry expertise in task forces and initiatives.”
“The relationship between international cybercrime, state-sponsored threat actors, and a burgeoning effort to establish coordinated and like-minded initiatives to thwart cybercrime, is quite complicated. However, existing international treaties like the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime, aims to establish a cooperative framework to combat cyber threats, and non-binding efforts like the Tallinn Manual, actively aim to address international legal issues when operating in cyberspace. Russia, meanwhile, has pushed back on the Budapest Convention and proposed its own Cybercrime Treaty to the United Nations (UN Resolution 74/247), broadening the definition of cybercrime and scope of their authority. Suffice it to say, it is extremely important for the United States and its allies to establish a firm understanding of the threat landscape and its shared security goals.”
A Clear Understanding
SCARS likewise believe that the answer is a clear recognition of the vast scope of these crimes and the seriousness of their nature to harm us all!
“Fraud, in its various forms, poses a significant threat to the national security of the United States. Fraud is not just a financial crime, but it undermines the foundations of trust and confidence that are essential to a functioning society. Fraudsters, who often operate across borders and use technology to conceal their activities, can cause harm on a massive scale and destabilize both the domestic and international financial systems.” – Tim McGuinness, Ph.D., SCARS Director
The primary reasons why fraud should be treated as a threat to national security are its potential impact on the economy, critical infrastructure, and the safety and security of individuals. Fraud can cause financial harm to both individuals and businesses, which can have ripple effects throughout the economy. This is especially true in the case of large-scale fraud, such as investment scamsInvestment Scams When a caller claims to have a promising investment opportunity that will help you get rich quick, it's likely a scam., Ponzi schemesPonzi Schemes A Ponzi scheme is a type of investment fraud. Use this information to identify, report, and protect yourself against this type of scam., relationship scamsRelationship Scam A Relationship Scam is a one-to-one criminal act that involves a trust relationship and uses deception & manipulation to get a victim to give to the criminal something of value, such as money! Click here to learn more: What Is A Relationship Scam?, and corporate fraud, which can cause significant losses to individuals and investors and disrupt the stability of the financial system.
Fraud also poses a threat to critical infrastructure, such as power grids, telecommunications networks, and other vital systems. Fraudsters who target these systems can cause significant harm and disrupt essential services, putting lives and property at risk. As an example, fraudsters who gain access to sensitive information, such as usernames and passwords, can use this information to disrupt the operations of critical infrastructure. In addition, fraudsters can use the proceeds of their crimes to fund other malicious activities, such as terrorism, that pose a threat to national security.
Another reason why fraud should be treated as a threat to national security is because of the harm it can cause to individuals. Fraudsters often target vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and those with limited financial resources, which may be less able to detect and respond to fraudulent activities. The psychological and financial impact of fraud can be devastating to victims and their families, causing long-term harm to their well-being and financial stability.
Furthermore, the rise of digital and online technologies has enabled fraudsters to operate more effectively and at a larger scale than ever before. Fraudsters can now use the internet to reach large numbers of potential victims, conceal their identities, and automate many of their activities. This makes it harder for law enforcement and financial institutions to detect and prevent fraud and increases the risk of harm to individuals and businesses.
In light of these challenges, it is clear that fraud must be treated as a national security threat. This requires a coordinated effort between law enforcement, financial institutions, and the private sector to detect and prevent fraud and to protect the public from its harmful effects. This effort should include increased investments in technology and resources to strengthen the ability of law enforcement and financial institutions to detect and prevent fraud. It should also include increased public education and outreach efforts to raise awareness of the threat of fraud and to help individuals and businesses better protect themselves from its harmful effects.
Fraud is a serious threat to national security in the United States, and it is essential that all stakeholders take action to address this challenge. By working together, the government, law enforcement, financial institutions, and the private sector can help protect the public from the harmful effects of fraud and maintain the stability and security of the economy and critical infrastructure. By treating fraud as a national security threat, we can help ensure a safer, more secure, and more prosperous future for all Americans.

Our managed peer supportPeer support Peer support occurs when people provide knowledge, experience, emotional, social or practical help to each other. It commonly refers to an initiative consisting of trained supporters and can take a number of forms such as peer mentoring, reflective listening (reflecting content and/or feelings), or in a support group. Peer support is also used to refer to initiatives where colleagues, members of self-help organizations and others meet, in person or online, to give each other connection and support on a reciprocal basis. Peer support is distinct from other forms of social support in that the source of support is a peer, a person who is similar in fundamental ways to the recipient of the support; their relationship is one of equality. A peer is in a position to offer support by virtue of relevant experience: he or she has "been there, done that" and can relate to others who are now in a similar situation. Trained peer support workers such as SCARS Volunteers receive special training and may be required to obtain Continuing Education Units, similar to clinical staff. Some other trained peer support workers may also be law-enforcement personnel and firefighters as well as emergency medical responders. groups allow victims to talk to other survivorsSurvivor A Scam Survivor is a victim who has been able to fully accept the reality of their situation.
