Is Digital Advertising the ‘Mother of All Money Laundries?’

Online ad fraud cost global brands and media companies $42 billion in 2019. Losses are projected to approach $100 billion worldwide by 2023, according to UK-based consultants Juniper Research. The integrity of the digital advertising industry has never been more in doubt. Just as the U.S. Treasury singled out fraud as the leading predicate crime for money laundering in its 2018 National Money Laundering Risk Assessment, proceeds from ad fraud are also reintegrated and rinsed via non-transparent, $336-billion digital media supply chains.

This report dives deep into this type of fraud leading to actionable recommendations that can inform your strategy, not just for those who are in the ad ecosystem, but for any who need to understand the true nature of the ad economy.
