Why Join IAFCI 

IAFCI gives our membership professionals the means to effectively communicate in a secure environment to promote the exchange of information in the never-ending effort to apprehend and prosecute financial crime law breakers.

The expansion of IAFCI mirrors that of the payment systems industry usage and acceptance throughout the world. Local and regional Chapters have and are being formed across the world. Our members come together from all segments of the financial community, law enforcement, and retail establishments. Our one goal is to stamp out financial fraud. 

Policy Statement

The Association firmly believes in the philosophy that all card/cheque/check fraud violations should be investigated and prosecuted without regard for monetary restitution and that law enforcement agencies and the courts must not be used as a vehicle for the recovery of financial losses.
