Commercial crime (sourced from

  • Commercial crime includes different types of “white collar” crimes such corruption, fraud, money laundering, embezzlement and forgery.
  • The number of incidents decreased by 11.6% to 67,830 incidents in the last year.
  • Commercial crime decreased by 22% since 2012/13 when it peaked at 89,138 cases.
  • Between 2004/05 and 2012/13 commercial crime increased by a substantial 65%.
  • An accurate trend for this broad crime category is difficult to establish as the public and private sectors seldom report these crimes to police.
  • The victims of crime survey shows that only 15.6% (one out of six) victims of consumer fraud report it to the police. The survey also found that the proportion of fraud victims who report dropped by 12.6% between 2011 and 2013; arguably because of the police’s inability to effectively investigate most cases of fraud and corruption reported to them.
  • The impact of these crimes is perhaps more important than the numbers reported: the financial losses suffered are high, as one incident can involve tens of millions of rands.
