I don't want to defend the guy, but if "Mr Stanford's assets have been frozen since February", even if he had 100 billon (frozen) he still would not be able to afford an attorney.

Hey, wait, I though his claim was that he really was a billionaire and these claims of fraud were totally bogus?

Just another in a long, long, long line of international scam artists who embezzled other people's investments just to look rich and use that look of wealth to embezzle others, see also Van Brink, Marc Harris, etc., etc., etc.

... well, all these Van Brink, Marc Harris should be out of their "temporare residences" soon, shouldn't they?

... as well as the nr. 1 promotor JEROME SCHNEIDER - could be nice arranging a meeting between them to talk about "old days and new plans"

by the way - where has mr. van brinks DIAMOND stranded... must be available for some interesting deals somewhere?

Sir Steal-a-lot should have immediately transferred some large sums to his attorneys' client trust funds. Apparently, he thought that he was too rich (or appeared too rich) to get caught.

But a lot of what Sir Steal-a-lot did was nutty, so why should this be any different?

Makes those in Antigua appear to be as dumb as he is.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
