"A big part of it (conmanship) has just moved online because the world has moved online and many of the people they want to scam are now online, which doesn't mean that the face-to-face conmanship has abated. Maybe it has, in some parts, but in my own assessment it is a continuum that needs to be brought to an end," the CARIMAC director said.
