Mass-Marketing Fraud Subgroup Cross Border Crime Forum, Mass-Marketing Fraud: A Report to the Minister of Public Safety of Canada and the Attorney General of the United States (Mar. 2008) (full-text).


This Report has three purposes. First, it describes the principal trends and developments since 2003 in four major types of crime associated with mass-marketing fraud (i.e., telemarketing fraud schemes, Internet fraud schemes, Nigerian fraud, and [[identity theft]). Second, it summarizes the principal approaches that law enforcement in both countries have adopted since 2003 to combat mass-marketing fraud more effectively. Third, it reports on recommendations that the Subgroup made in 2003 as part of a binational action plan to combat mass-marketing fraud, and set out additional recommendations that address changes in the nature and types of mass-marketing fraud that have emerged since 2003.
