In response to increasing transaction card crime, a group of credit card investigators and law enforcement professionals organized the International Association of Credit Card Investigators (IACCI) in 1968. In 1996, the membership responded to the fraud scene by changing the name of the organization to the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators. IAFCI gives professional investigators national and international investigative capabilities to establish effective financial crimes programs. Members work to eradicate fraudulent financial transactions, to promote a complete exchange of criminal intelligence and to apprehend and prosecute lawbreakers. The expansion of IACCI to IAFCI mirrors that of payment systems use and acceptance throughout the world. Chapters have been formed across the United States, Canada, Europe, Central and South America, Africa and Asia.
