The vast majority of account holders have nothing to fear. It is only those that set up dummy structures (tax fraud) that are at risk you big dumbo.

Swiss banking secrecy does not protect tax fraud.

they are not so secret anymore with US FINCEN, Canadian FINTRAC, UN FATF , UK FSA, and EU directives
to hide money anymore is difficult but look to ANDORRA or URUGUAY. that is if you could smuggle out the money in a suit case that US ICE would not see at the airport. that is if you could hide wire money transfers that report any amount over USD10,000

if you deal in contraband and have your own plane then probably you could do it with bribery of enough local officials.still for an ANDORRA account you have to buy real estate or show intent to buy real estate so that would leave a paper trial
if you try URUGUAY then travel to or from there would leave a paper trail

if you deal in cotnraband odds are either the bank will rip you off ( cf. Belize,BVI,Dominica) or your colleagues in the criminal operation will kill you within 5 years ( the average life expectancy of a drug dealer) so it really is very difficult to hide money anymore

You Swiss fans can snarf up the last copies of Bob Bauman's Swiss Money Secrets -- it be a nice collector's item for when you "can remember when ....".

Plus Bob is selling them for S&H only, or whatever you can afford to send in!

Andorra and Uruguay have agreed to the OECD initiative on preventing tax evasion. They days of openly engaging in tax evasion from any offshore jurisdiction are gone.

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.
