Abstract

Cyberscam classification schemes developed by international statistical reporting bodies, including the Bureau of Statistics (Australia), the Internet Crime Complaint Center (US), and the Environics Research Group (Canada), are diverse and largely incompatible. This makes comparisons of cyberscam incidence across jurisdictions very difficult. This paper argues that the critical first step towards the development of an inter-jurisdictional and global approach to identify and intercept cyberscams - and prosecute scammers - is a uniform classification system.
