What Is Financial Fraud?
International criminals entice their victims by offering convincing
documents, generally fraudulent, promising substantial sums of money
for participating in their scheme. At some point the victim will be
asked or directed to provide up front fees to proceed with the transaction.
Financial Instruments generally offered in fraudulent transactions
Zero Coupon Bonds, Prime Bank Notes, Bank Guarantees, Money Loans or
Transfers, Bearer Stock, Precious Metals, Mining Stock, Crude Oil and
Major Construction Projects.
The players are unsuspecting businessmen, brokers, bank officers,
government agents, notars, attorneys, accountants and financial
consultants. The perpetrators will associate their activities with trust
companies, officers of banks, non-registered banks domiciled in offshore
tax havens, and governments agents.
International criminal financial transactions are offered via the Internet,
fax and telex. The current choice of delivery is the Internet.(see
News Alert). If you or one of your clients are approached or have
been caught up in one of these transactions, we suggest that you contact
your local FBI office or Interpol. However if you are currently facing
criminal prosecution or you are not sure what you are involved in, contact
our ICI office as soon as possible.
Why these international criminals are so successful: Legitimate financial
transactions are conducted every moment of every day in the world, international
trading uses prime bank notes, bonds, stock, bearer stock, letters of
credit, government guarantees, insurance policies, euro bonds/currency,
trust instruments, interests and currency swaps, commodities and oil.
There are over 400 major banks in every tax haven in the world. Many
major corporations maintain a presence in these markets for tax deferments,
ease of commerce and trading.
Knowledge is paramount: ICI will assist with
investigative due-diligence prior to making an investment or financing
a project. The international market offers many opportunities for investment.
ICI has the ability to investigate and bring
to light the total picture. We will develop intelligence on the local
business climate, government cover-ups, questionable partners, potential
labor problems and development authorities that have been known to be
less informative than they should be. ICI operatives
are trained to obtain the answers to your questions and provide the
information required for the right decisions to be made, prior to a
costly venture. Planning for the unknown is always sound advice.
ICI operatives have recovered substantial
financial returns for the investors of funds managed by large Capital
companies in Europe the United States and other countries, including
one of the largest NASD arbitration awards.
