This Forum is intended to be a place where mature people can exchange information that is relevant to financial due diligence.

The editor reserves the right to delete messages, particularly those that he considers to be irrelevant, malicious, frivolous and/or overtly promotional. The worst offenders will be banned from posting messages on the OffshoreAlert Forum without any prior warning.

Users must not breach the copyright of commercial businesses, particularly news organizations. You must not copy an entire article that exists on another news provider's web-site and paste it here. Instead, you should copy and paste only the headline and the first paragraph (with full attribution) and provide a link to the source's web-site, where the entire article can be read in its entirety.

We wish to draw visitors' attention to the fact that many messages posted on Internet forums are done so anonymously and, as such, have limited value. Information should not be accepted as fact unless corroborated by independent, credible evidence.

Furthermore, it is not uncommon for the same person to post several messages under a variety of aliases to create the appearance that others support their views.

Finally, it is worth pointing out that Internet message boards are often used by crooks to solicit their next victim and/or confuse existing victims by exposing them to false and/or misleading information. It is also not uncommon for disgruntled employees or competitors to post unfounded negative information about businesses and individuals.

Nevertheless, such forums can serve a useful purpose in the initial information-gathering process when used responsibly.

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.
