• Trust between customer and provider is implicit in most financial services which contributes towards opportunities for crime.
• Financial crime lies on a spectrum of behaviours that may cause consumer detriment. Whether or not some types of behaviour amount to a crime may change over time and can differ depending on whether it is viewed from an industry or consumer perspective.
• Financial crimes can result in widespread economic damage.
