Abstract: By means of this hypothetical investigative summary report (case study), the authors propose to assist law enforcement agencies and the telecommunication industry in the assembly and presentation of evidence. Telecommunication fraud is widespread, but few prosecutions have been initiated, in part due to lack of a standard methodology. It is hoped that standardization of the routines used to pursue the telecommunication fraud criminal will be expedited by the efforts of industry organizations. Actual case references and Federal and State statutes are cited. (Author abstract modified)
