Cleanup[edit]

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)

Suggestions for rewrite and reinsert? This deletion removed every source from the article. 71.121.31.183 (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 173.75.81.106 (talk) 14:03, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

How about an extra category "Payments fraud"[edit]

Several examples could be listed under this and it might help with cleaning up. Also, the term is widely used, but not even mentioned in this article. ----Bernburgerin (talk) 10:03, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
