This paper outlines the details of a real-life scam, which involves creating fraudulent Web sites which pretend to sell goods, but are actually used to perform click-through crime or use identity fraud to claim commission on the sale of goods. It involves an investigation of real-life investigatory data, which outlines the methodology used to implement an investigatory framework. This novel framework allows an investigator to use anonymised data, which still has the context of the investigation
