Paper Abstract

This paper highlights the problems a Dutch bank has in choosing the security measures it takes for valuable documents. The various types of fraud for which the security measures are intended are dealt with. The magnitude of fraud and its subsequent effects are examined, leading to the conclusion that security is necessary for more than just financial reasons. Security procedures and measures that are possible elsewhere are examined. After that, the application of security possibilities to value documents will be elaborated on, particularly from the point of view of effectiveness and costs. It is assumed that security and science can serve the interests of the criminal and consequently, to some extent, harm the interests of the bank and its customers
