The cleanup header has apparently been on this page for a long time. The geo/worldwide tag has also been on the page for a while. I've started trying to make sense of this by splitting the article into two sections: 1) Banking laws (which are specific to each country/jurisdiction), 2) Mechanics of banking fraud.

This article still needs a lot more work. There should be more expansion on the U.S. law provisions, as well as those for other jurisdictions. In particular, U.K. and Swiss laws strike me as important [may well be others].

The mechanics could also use more cleanup. Right now it's a list of various types of fraud. I pass no judgment right now on whether or not this organization is appropriate--I only ask if it could be condensed. I look forward to contributions from others.LH (talk) 16:13, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

I've added the cleanup tag to the mechanics section. There should be more development on the country-specific laws, however the organization for that is in place and people just need to add content. The mechanics section has a lot of information, perhaps too much, but it is not well organized and is too anecdotal. Anyone who could help re-stylize this, it would be appreciated.LH (talk) 20:10, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

I have reorganised the contents so the stuff related to each other is put together (Stolen Cheques, Cheque Kiting and Forged and Altered Cheques are now together. I believe its better. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Superior Wiki Editor (talkcontribs) 07:37, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Lots of Work Needed[edit]

As you can see from my tags, this article needs LOTS of work. A serious revamp is in order, preferably one starting from references, of which there aren't any. I'm familiar with the topic, so will do my best, but help from experts and others is welcome. Vicenarian (talk) 20:17, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Why was well sourced subsection Bank impersonation on section Mechanics of bank fraud deleted?[edit]

Why was subsection Bank impersonation on section Mechanics of bank fraud deleted? This leaves no content on fraud buy bank impersonation, a major prosecutable crime? (talk) 02:23, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Please do not spam the talk page. One section for your complaints is enough. I suggest that you visit WT:Tambayan Philippines. There are some concerns regarding your edits. Moray An Par (talk) 02:57, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Why was micronation section deleted from country section? Error? (talk) 02:23, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Why was RS individual case info deleted, and nonRS individual cases not?[edit]

Why were two unsourced individuals in China with minimal content retained, but well detailed and RS content on micronation international operator deleted as information on individual? Suggestions for rewrite and reinsert? This deletion removed every source from the article. (talk) 02:23, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Proposed section addition[edit]

Content in the "Bank impersonation" section was deleted as UNDUE (massively). Proposed restore section with content "Fraudsters may set up companies with names that sound similar to existing banks. For example, Pearlasia Gamboa used the corporate name "Bankasia AG", which sounds similar to the existing "Bank Asia" in Bangladesh, and she claimed net assets of over $25 Billion in 1995 dollars.[1][2] —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:03, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
