Usury among crime on the rise in 2021

For companies in the tertiary sector, usury is the criminal phenomenon which in 2021 recorded the greatest increase, more than illegal, but even more than racketeering and theft. It is the traditional Confcommercio Report, ‘We like legality’, to take stock of the perception of crimes on the rise. The crime was fueled by Covid first and then by the war: extortion, theft, counterfeiting and commercial illegalism, there is a long list of illegalities increased during the long periods of lockdown and now due to the impact of the return of economic sanctions imposed on Russia that slow down companies that between loss of turnover and higher costs have to deal with a cost of over 30 billion euros in total and which puts about 200 thousand regular jobs at risk.
