Unraveling financial schemes often involves tracing a myriad of corporations incorporated across the country and sometimes around the world.
Corporate entities called shells -- companies with no significant assets or operations -- and the people involved with them are often at the center of plots ranging from bogus investment firms to money-laundering endeavors to pump-and-dump stock scams.
This session will also help you understand the characteristics of shell companies, their legitimate and illegitimate purposes in the business sector, and methods for backgrounding and connecting intricate webs of firms and individuals scattered around the globe. You'll gain tools for tracking corporate investigations in your coverage area.
