Meeting, Location, and Sponsors

On April 26, 1998, 15 participants invited by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) convened for a 1-day Fraud Victimization Focus Group meeting at the Hyatt Regency, Union Station, St. Louis, Missouri. OVC convened the meeting as part of the Economic Crime Summit: Exploring Solutions for the 21st Century, sponsored by the National White Collar Crime Center (NWCCC), the National Coalition for the Prevention of Economic Crime, the Mid-States Organized Crime Information Center, and the Bureau of Justice Assistance and OVC, both from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The focus group met immediately following the National Crime Victims' Rights Week as part of the National White Collar Crime Center's Annual Economic Crime Summit. The time and place were selected to enhance public awareness and to expand the reach of victim support services to those exploited and devastated by economic crime.
