According to Philip Rathle on The New Stack, graph databases can be used for more than just finding football stadiums. In fact, they can help with some pretty interesting problems: breaking up organized crime, for example.

The example Rathle relies on for this article isn’t the Sopranos-style organized crime you might be picturing, but rings of bank and credit card fraudsters. These are perpetrators of “first-party fraud,” defined by Rathle as people who “…apply for credit cards, loans, overdrafts, and unsecured banking credit lines with no intention of paying any of them back.”
