Wednesday 18 December 2013 13:11 CET | News

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has teamed with the Western Australia Police to combat internet fraud and money laundering.

According to Ibrahim Lamorde, chairman of the EFCC, the alliance became imperative as financial and economic crimes remained a “monster” locally and around in the world. By working with the Western Australia Police and other police forces throughout the world, the EFCC hopes to increase its capacity to track down and prosecute the perpetrators of these crimes and reduce the financial impact on their victims.

The Major Fraud Squad (MFS) of the Western Australia Police will work more closely with the EFCC to combat online fraud and international cybercrime. The collaboration between the MFS and the EFCC is the latest for Nigerias foremost anti-graft agency and its foreign counterparts.
