Abstract

Within the constraints of this research, this chapter explores variations in how offenders acquire the knowledge, skills and techniques necessary to commit a range of financial crimes. It argues that foundation, or baseline, knowledge required by financial criminals is often learned in legitimate settings, including through on-the-job learning and legitimate daily routines. In the absence of traditional learning opportunities, four alternative learning sources are introduced in this chapter in order to reveal how legitimate knowledge, skills and technique deficiencies are met or augmented, often by organised crime groups, in order to facilitate crime. A clear distinction has been drawn between legitimate knowledge and skill learning and the learning of more specialised criminal techniques. This study contributes to the body of financial crime research on how these crimes are committed and highlights areas in which
organisations and law enforcement agencies are able to reduce the opportunity for alternative learning sources that financial criminals may utilise in preparing for their crimes.
