Presentation Synopsis: The nexus between gambling and fraud has become the subject of debate among a broad range of stakeholders including fraud examiners, forensic accountants, regulators, policy-makers and academics. While there is considerable anecdotal evidence of the effect of gambling on fraud offences, to date there have been no published attempts to systematically estimate the economic cost of gambling-motivated fraud in Australia. Drawing on a wide range of sources, we find that the annual cost of gambling-motivated fraud to the Australian economy is in the order of $700 million - $1.15 billion, excluding other gambling-motivated crime such as burglary and aggravated robbery. This cost is broken down by gambling type and location. This presentation also includes a discussion about potential implications of this finding.
