The report provides an overview of how criminals have adapted their activities to the COVID-19 pandemic. More specifically, the report focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on crimes such as fraud, cybercrime, distribution of counterfeit and sub-standard goods and organized property crimes. This report is based on information Europol receives from the EU Member States daily and intends to support Member States’ law enforcement authorities in their work.
