Here are some places to start:

Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau (CIB) of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)

Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics (University of Albany)



Summary information on consumer fraud, identity theft, security etc. can be found on this website  https://www.javelinstrategy.com/fraud-and-security(Full reports are for sale.)

Also look at the Subject Guide for Statistical Information. Under Criminal Justice (US) or Criminal Justice-International.

Take a look at this e-book: Architecture of Illegal Markets

The AU Reference Librarians are always looking for statistics on counterfeit items and the "Black Market." If you find additional sources not listed here, please let us know by clicking on the "Improve this answer or post a comment" link below!  Thanks.
