Since the beginning of the pandemic, many businesses have had to go online to continue their activities, writes Europol.

With citizens now using online services several times a week and increasingly doing their shopping online, there is a much greater opportunity for attack by cybercriminals. Europol, along with the Merchant Risk Council and participating countries, is launching the #SellSafe campaign today after the success of the campaign last year to highlight the top tactics for fighting online fraud. The aim of the campaign is to make e-commerce more secure by promoting safe online purchasing methods and by helping new merchants to open their first online shop without the risk of cyberattacks. This takes place after law enforcement authorities from participating countries, supported by Europol and the Merchant Risk Council, joined forces in a coordinated action against online fraud from 1-31 October as part of the 2021 eCommerce Action.

As a result of this, 46 suspects have been arrested linked to fraudulent transactions. The modus operandi involved using certain mobile apps associated with banks in order to make transfers and purchases illegally. .
