EU urging scam crackdown

Date: February 28, 2007

The European Union will officially launch a crackdown on cross-border scams, including Internet fraud, this week.

The scheme, called the Consumer Protection Cooperation Network, is an Europe-wide network designed to help law-enforcement bodies tackle crooks who defraud victims in one country while operating in another. It has been created under the auspices of European legislation called the Consumer Protection Cooperation Regulations, which was passed in 2004.

This network of consumer protection watchdogs has been in operation since Dec. 29, 2006, but will be launched officially in Brussels on Thursday by the EU commissioner for consumer affairs, Meglena Kuneva.
