    Through analysis of National Crime Agency held data on organised crime groups, and in-depth analysis of qualitative interviews with convicted fraudsters and enforcement professionals, this detailed study fills a significant gap in the contemporary literature. Throughout the book, the perspective of convicted offenders and those involved in its policing are juxtaposed to show the ease of committing fraud from the perspective of offenders on the one hand, and the investigative challenges experienced by law enforcement officers on the other. The book highlights offender motivations, their routes into fraud and organised crime, and the nature and shape of organised crime groups and their operations. Alongside the offender perspective is that of law enforcement interviewees, who provide a unique interpretation of the procedural and legislative weaknesses that appear to allow this type of offender to make considerable financial gain. The empirical findings alongside key recommendations provide a unique insight into the world of organised crime and those who enforce the law.
