Case Study

Fraud investigation in the UK, Finland, and Russia

TDI was engaged by a UK-based insurance company to investigate potential fraud related to the disappearance of a shipment of cellular telephones in London. Our investigation uncovered a network of co-conspirators in the UK, Finland, and Russia that were involved in a complex operation to reroute bulk orders of cellular telephones to Russia. Using sources in Russia and the UK, we tracked the missing shipment of cellular phones to a port near St. Petersburg, Russia. Our sources took possession of the shipment, compared the SIM card serial numbers of the phones to a list of missing SIM cards provided by the client, and confirmed that it was the missing shipment.
