Both fraud and corruption are a stir that lives in normal communion with the daily life of society. Because they manage to go unnoticed or because they are ignored by individuals, they feed themselves and therefore persist and gain unbearable dimensions. There are different forms of tax evasion, such as tax evasion; money laundering, such as the fraud created to ensure that illicit money enters the economic circuit cleanly; and the corruption of e-sports, which is gaining a high dimension, not only because of the problem of addiction, but also of illegal gambling and doping of sportsmen.
The purpose of this article is to identify examples of sports fraud, particularly those recently publicized and more media related to the issue of tax evasion, money laundering and corruption in sports.
The methodology used was the bibliographic review of articles published in scientific journals, having, in certain cases, chosen national journals of daily circulation, due to the specificity of the fraud, its actors and the way of disclosure and access of the information.
It has been concluded that both fraud and sports corruption are manifested in tax evasion by those who earn the most and can use the tax havens to deceive the authorities. Money laundering is a subject whose problem is difficult for the supervisory and controlling authorities because it is difficult to detect this type of scheme. Denunciation is the most widely used and easy way to reach defrauders, but other forms of disclosure are equally important in detecting how to live beyond your means, refusing to go on vacation, etc. The case of e-sports is a more present problem than with the technological innovation and the advance of the new sports modalities also begins to be object of fraud. Not only with the doping of the players but also with the sums involved in betting this modality is having very illicit contours and that, given its maturity, it must already be fought.
The lack of regulation by world sports authorities and entities creates the necessary conditions for the proliferation of the phenomenon. There is a need for worldwide re-education, higher penalties and tougher penalties for the fight against these types of fraud and corruption to take effect.Pages: 90-97 | 403 Views 27 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
