In on-line gambling fraud can taken various forms and be carried out by various actors.
Players can develop collusive gaming policies between themselves using pokerbots
Scammers can act on gaming accounts using “fishing” techniques
Operators can manipulate accounts and games with and without damage to the exchequer
Each type of fraud requires the development of appropriate activities that can prevent or detect it.
In each case the identification and understanding of the mechanism of the fraud and its characteristics (operational, geographical, by type of victim, etc....) is essential.
A specific anti-fraud know-how is crucial to the effectiveness of prevention and repression.
A database of the frauds and data on the fraud detected consolidates this know-how and increases over time. The frequencies and damage of any kind of fraud can be highlighted in this database in order to define priorities to counter them.
