ON-DEMAND: Following the Money to Identify and Dismantle ORC Networks

Follow the Money ORC

Similar to any business operation, organized retail crime (ORC) networks operate to make money. A key difference however is that they must innovate to move and hide that money as much as possible. What was once considered a “street crime” operating solely with cash on the street, ORC has evolved to the world of e-commerce and cryptocurrency. Finding and following the trails of money as it flows through legal and illegal channels is critical to identify the network, build the case, and ultimately dismantle the ORC operation.

In this webinar, we look first inside the retail business at areas of opportunity in e-commerce and e-fraud. Well-known researcher Adrian Beck along with Todd Isenhour, LPC from Lowe’s discuss expanding the category of e-commerce within the typology of Total Retail Loss and exam the trails of theft and fraud within the retail business.

Then we will move outside retail with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) investigators and the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) executives who work with outside agencies and financial institutions to detect the accounts of these criminal organizations to identify the network so it can be dismantled.
