What is the nature and extent of travel document fraud on the Dark Web?

Digital crime is increasing, partly as a result of the possibility to act anonymously on the Dark Web. This anonymous environment  can be used for legitimate and illicit use. Travel document fraud is one of the criminal manifestations on the Dark Web. The Dark Web is easy to approach and use. Actors on the Dark Web apply a strict hierarchical ranking system. Mutual interaction is anonymous and based on trust. Buyers and vendors feel free to act. This study proves fraudulent travel documents of a relatively good quality can be purchased via the Dark Web in alleged anonymity and with limited effort. The Dark Web is therefore a new potential source to obtain fraudulent documents. The alleged anonymity and the accessibility of the Dark Web increases the potential target audience. These factors contribute to the enlarged probability of fraudulent travel documents being purchased.
