Deputy Assistant Commissioner Janet Williams of Scotland Yard has warned that international criminal networks are preparing to target the London 2012 Olympics, using the Internet to carry out their frauds.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Williams, speaking at Association of Chief Police Officers annual conference, said:

"There is a lot of work to be done with e-crime and the Olympics. First of all we need to get the money sorted and there is an imperative about that now.

We know from Canada and Beijing that the threats are real and they have grown in the last six months.

These are all potentially subject to abuses and we need to understand these and put plans in place very quickly now.

That is a projected area of work and it is where e-crime meets the more significant threats and terrorism threats.

Needless to say, the police are asking for more money to help them fight the 2012 threat. Funny how the Olympics is used by all and sundry as an excuse to get the begging bowl out!
