Salami sliceIn general, salami slicing refers to anything cut into small actions or fractions. For example, with electronic transfers salami slicing is the action of taking tiny fractions of every transaction that builds into a large sum of illegally gained money. If you stole fractions of a penny on a transaction, it could go unnoticed and if you were to steal this small amount from thousands of transactions it can quickly add up.
