Ebay.au Helps Trap Welfare FraudData from online trading site eBay.com.au has helped Australia’s Government welfare agency, Centrelink, catch out social security recipients who are not declaring big profits from internet sales. Centrelink has cleverly compared its payment records with the activity of nearly 20,000 people who are running profitable eBay businesses.

The government agency identified 25 people who must repay close to $AU900,000 in welfare payments they weren’t entitled to. Centrelink general manager Hank Jongen said some matters had been referred to the director of public prosecutions, but no charges have yet been laid.

Welfare fraud costs Australia more than $AU600 million a year, the Australian Institute of Criminolgy – AIC – says welfare fraud is difficult to measure because it falls outside the two main crime measures of incidents reported to police and victim experience surveys. The AIC says the UK department responsible for social welfare estimated in 2009 that more than two percent of all benefit expenditures, or £3 billion a year, was fraudulently claimed :: Read the full article »»»»

MORE INDIAN RAPE

Indian Police say six men have been arrested over the gang-rape of a Swiss tourist in central India, in an incident that has renewed focus on the rampant violence against women in India.

The woman was on a cycling holiday with her husband in the impoverished Madhya Pradesh state when six men attacked the couple on Friday night, sexually assaulting the woman, bashing the man, and robbing the pair. Concern remains high in India over the safety and status of women and girls in the nation of 1.2 billion. According to government statistics, one women is raped in the country every 20 minutes.

The Swiss foreign ministry in Bern released a statement on Saturday expressing deep shock at the “tragic incident”. The attack comes just three months after thousands took to the streets in nationwide protests following the fatal gang-rape of a 23-year-old student on a bus in New Delhi in December last year.In 2003, a 36-year-old female Swiss diplomat was abducted in the car park of a popular New Delhi auditorium, driven away by two men and raped. :: Read the full article »»»»

AFP Cybercrime Unit Cracks Major Australian Paedophile Ring

It’s a much smaller world for Australian paedophiles today. No longer safe behind their hideous little peer-2-peer networks, Australian Federal Police – AFP – say they’ve smashed a major child-sex-abuse network of online predators, arresting 21 people from around Australia this week.

AFP commenced Operation Conqueror in January, investigating the production, sharing and distribution of child abuse material – video and images –  on the internet.

AFP, state and territory police officers carried out 36 search warrants in every state and territory as part of the operation, and arrested 21 people, with a further 6 still being sought for questioning.

“The material that’s been seized can only be classed as abhorrent and personally disgusting,” AFP Cyber Crimes operations manager Glen McEwan said. “Tackling this heinous crime is a key focus for the AFP.”

Hundreds of thousands of images and videos were seized in the raids, Mr McEwan said that one property raided had 26 hard drives – ranging in size from 500GB-2TB – filled with illegal images and videos.

Mr McEwan called on the community to continue passing on information and assistance in prosecuting crimes against children.  He says as even though technology evolves allowing criminals to change their techniques, it is just a matter of time before online predators will be caught. Mr McEwan said the images seized were both locally and internationally produced :: Read the full article »»»»
