Dave Sanders and his associates have an odd asset recovery technique. Pretend to be the FBI agents (or Navy SEAL or whatever) and threaten scammers to return money. He tried to get money back from Anthony Vassallo and actually did get money back from someone who ran a scheme in Las Vegas ($800,000). From article, the Dave Sanders asset recovery team included Sean Smartt, Craig Anderson, and Cassandra Moore. Given how long it takes authorities to investigate a scam and investors usually getting back pennies on the dollar, I can understand why investors would want to use asset recovery vigilantes but it isn't something I would recommend. Just remember that for every good scam there are probably 10 follow-up asset recovery scams.

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.
