This title unites a series of leading commentators on topical issues of bank fraud on a national, regional and international level. It includes an examination of the basic concepts of bank fraud; English and US perspectives on bank fraud; and definitions under the money laundering legislation.

The second edition updates the original work with the many changes in the law over the last five years. The book looks at fraud in its legal context and provides practical and essential advice for anyone who has to deal with common issues. It covers the action that should be taken once fraud has taken place and also includes chapters on bank supervision, prevention of fraud and the protection of assets.

This definitive work includes chapters written from the perspective of the banker, the lawyer and the auditor. The second edition has been significantly developed to include chapters on: Barings, Daiwa and LTCN; lessons from the American Thrift Crisis; Internet payment services and crime in cyberspace; and banks and Nazi claims.
