Selling Scams To Foreigners: Inside Boiler Rooms & How Alternative Asset Recovery Methods Have Been Successful in SE Asia

Boiler rooms are international fraud schemes that operate with near impunity while defrauding investors around the world of hundreds of millions of dollars each year. In this presentation, experts in both federal law enforcement and private investigations will share their unique perspectives on combating the issue. In the first part of the session, a Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Special Agent will discuss how federal agents locate, gather evidence, and prosecute overseas boiler rooms, as well as share examples of successful cases. The Agent will also discuss how the modern day investigation requires a strong working relationship with the private banking industry as well as cooperation between multiple foreign governmental entities. In the second part of the session, a private investigator and internationally recognized expert in the field of boiler rooms will discuss how the Philippines and other parts of SE Asia are hotbeds of criminality, places where expatriate investment fraudsters operate boiler rooms as they set about swindling foreigners living in the world's major countries, many of whom are pensioners. In addition, the investigator will discuss who is responsible, pay-offs to police, judges, and others in authority, assaults, murders, and other related issues. The investigator will also show you how to use alternative methods to recover assets, thereby avoiding long and costly litigation in jurisdictions with poor judicial systems.
