With both Internet adoption rates and purchases being made on e-commerce sites at an all-time high, it comes as no surprise that a market ripe with counterfeit, stolen, and fraudulent goods online has also developed. We are holding a free webinar on how to use open sources to stop online fraud and counterfeiting at 1 p.m. CST on Wednesday, June 25, 2014.
Online Fraud is Bigger Than Ever
The International Chamber of Commerce, an organization tasked with assisting in the fight against the sale of counterfeit goods online, estimates that counterfeit goods have contributed to $125 billion dollars lost in tax revenue and welfare spending for developed countries and also contributes to the loss of over 2.5 million jobs. What’s even scarier is at the current growth rate, the ICC expects that the value of counterfeit goods by 2015 to exceed $1.7 trillion, which happens to be over 2% of the world’s total current economic output.
