Abstract

Structural changes in routine activity patterns were said to influence crime rates by affecting the convergence in space and time of the three minimal elements of direct-contact predatory violations: * the presence of motivated offenders; * the availability of suitable targets; and * the absence of capable guardians against a violation (Cohen & Felson 1979: 589). [...] living in remote communities where financial disadvantage is more likely can enable fraud to be rationalised more easily.
