The Nexus between Terrorism and U.S. Product Counterfeiting


The Nexus between Terrorism and U.S. Product Counterfeiting

Abstract: 

Terrorists have increasingly been linked to product counterfeiting, but evidence for this connection has been mostly anecdotal and speculative. We use the Extremist Financial Crime Database (EFCDB) and the Michigan State University Center for Anti-Counterfeiting and Product Protection’s (A-CAPP) Incident Database to provide an overview of ten product-counterfeiting schemes and individual suspects linked to terrorism in the United States.
