ICC Commercial Crime Services (CCS) is the anti-crime arm of the International Chamber of Commerce. Based in UK, CCS' main task is to combat all forms of commercial crime.
CCS is a membership organisation and comprises three specialised Bureaux. These operate autonomously and offer its members a full range of resources. Companies and individuals can become members of an individual Bureau according to their business type and requirements. They may also benefit from association with more than one Bureau. Details of membership fee structures can be found in the Membership section.
International Maritime Bureau (IMB)
Dedicated to the prevention of trade finance, maritime, transport and trade fraud and malpractice, IMB is a focal point for the international trading and shipping industry and organisations which facilitate the movement of goods. IMB also manages the IMB Piracy Reporting Centre, which acts to suppress piracy and armed robbery against ships.
Financial Investigation Bureau (FIB)
Formerly known as the Commercial Crime Bureau, FIB provides commercial banks, the financial services sector and investors with a range of ‘Know Your Customer' (KYC), financial fraud and anti-money laundering services that help members balance risk against reward and avoid becoming the victims of financial scams.
Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau (CIB)
CIB is one of the world's leading organisations dedicated to combating the counterfeiting of products and documents, protecting the integrity of intellectual property and brands, and preventing copyright abuse. CIB has a specialised team of internet investigators to combat this trade. CIB also hosts the International Hologram Image Register.
Organized and operating under the auspices of the Commercial Crime Services of the International Chamber of Commerce, FraudNet is a 24/7 international rapid deployment force that pries open the vault of bank secrecy and helps victims locate and recover their stolen assets with the same cyberpowered speed, stealth, reach and proficiency as the most sophisticated global fraud network.
Fraudsters meet their match in FraudNet’s experienced team of civil asset recovery lawyers, investigators and forensic accountants, who creatively wield their own sophisticated legal and investigative tools to trace and seize stolen assets wherever located.
FraudNet members have already recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of individuals, corporations and national governments victimized by fraud and grand corruption schemes. Since its inception in 2004, FraudNet has worked for the governments of the United Kingdom, Nigeria, Brazil, Guatemala, Trinidad and Tobago, and Antigua and Barbuda, among others. Our specialized network of legal counsel for transnational asset location and recovery has now expanded to include 68 members in 61 countries. FraudNet has global reach.
Today, members of FraudNet are able to take rapid, coordinated, and focused action on behalf of fraud victims in most jurisdictions throughout the world. What amounts to a private asset recovery rapid deployment force reaches into jurisdictions where fraud detection and redress can be a legal minefield, and where the chances of successful asset recovery have historically been thought to be slim.
