Hi,

There is absolutely no security in place whatsoever to prevent criminal impersonation like we see here from happening.

Is this a comparative construction?

We don't have a sound security system to prevent criminal impersonation like we see (criminal impersonation) from happening.

I'd appreciate your help.

It doesn't look and sound like a comparative construction to me.If we dissect the sentence as follows, we can see better.
The pink part [like we see here ] is metaphoric expression modifying, the preceding noun.

By the way. I am not exactly sure what you mean by "criminal impersonation", though, from the context, I guess you are referring to "identity crime". Is that a good guess?

It is about a story of a guy named Sam Eshaghoff, who took the SAT for others in exchange for money.(I'm not sure if this type of crime can be called "identity crime") And as for your answer to my question, I think you have a point. You don't say "we see something from happening." Right? Thank you for the reply, DE.
