ICC Seminar ‘Recognizing and preventing fraud in international trade'

  • 13 Oct 2021
  • 09:00 - 17:00
  • Den Haag

Expanding global markets, especially in emerging countries, offer business opportunities for all, including fraudsters and members of organized crime. Fraud in international trade is a risk with costly consequences for all parties involved. Money laundering, the use of containers to commit fraud as well as piracy and hijacking are all part of elaborate fraud schemes. Fraud affects traders, shippers, logistic companies, insurers, banks and all other parties involved in international trade, transport and banking transactions. It is of vital importance to identify misuse and fraud before it happens, before documents are submitted or payments are made.

This full day seminar covers in detail the different manifestations of fraud in international trade. The experts will clarify how to recognize red flags and criminal behaviour in advance in order to avoid losses. In doing so, they are going to address the risks for all parties involved and explain how to minimize those risks. How can duped businesses and private parties recover their assets and what can businesses do to trace fraudsters? These and more questions will be answered during this full day seminar.
