Cooperation between the Irish and Finnish authorities with the support of Eurojust led to a successful strike against an organised crime group (OCG) involved in extended online fraud and money laundering.

Several persons were brought to justice and criminal instruments/assets seized (e.g. fake documentation, equipment for document forgery, laptops and cash). Irish and Finnish authorities agreed at Eurojust on a coordinated investigative and prosecutorial strategy, so that the countries could quickly execute mutual legal assistance requests and collect/exchange evidence in a reliable way. The OCG used fabricated online platforms to offer to unknowing customers non-existent goods exceeding € 3 million.
