LONDON -- In October, 2012, OffshoreAlert exposed a £117 m fraud committed by Cayman Islands-domiciled Axiom Legal Financing Fund. Two weeks later, Axiom was suspended and went into liquidation. Its principal was struck off as a solicitor in England.

In February, 2014, OffshoreAlert exposed a £100 m fraud by a group that included Jersey-domiciled Argentum Capital Ltd., whose chairman was an ex-London High Court judge. Six days later, the Fund was de-listed by the Channel Islands Securities Exchange and three Cayman affiliates went into liquidation.

The point is this: Since 1997, OffshoreAlert has an unblemished track record of exposing countless investment frauds, money laundering schemes, and tax evasion scams - while they were in progress.

In London next month, we will pass on our proven expertise in international financial intelligence and investigations to high-level attendees from around the world at OffshoreAlert's 3rd Annual European Conference.

The event will steer clear of clichés and stereotypes and educate attendees about what's really going on in offshore jurisdictions such as Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Liechtenstein, BVI, Cayman, Bahamas, and Bermuda.

"Offshore jurisdictions play a major role in global finance," says OffshoreAlert's owner and editor, David Marchant. "Virtually every high net worth individual or big corporation in the world's major countries uses them to structure financial transactions or has considered using them.

"The OffshoreAlert Conference is an impartial forum to disseminate up-to-date and accurate information about all material aspects of conducting business in offshore jurisdictions and help attendees to understand how it can benefit them."

There will be 18 sessions for providers, buyers and investigators of financial products and services that are targeted at the wealthy.

Speakers include senior representatives of the Financial Intelligence Units of Cayman, Guernsey, & Liechtenstein; the retired IRS Agent who headed the tax evasion investigation into foreign banks; the FBI Agent who investigated 'Wolf of Wall Street' Jordan Belfort, asset recovery attorneys from the BVI, Canada, London, Ukraine, and USA, and OffshoreAlert's editor.

The OffshoreAlert Conference Europe will take place at The Bloomsbury Hotel, in London, on November 10-11, 2014. Details can be found at https://www.offshorealert.com/conference/london/.

Cayman crypto firm ICOBox sued by US regulator for 'unregistered' activity
Cayman Islands cryptocurrency "incubator" ICOBox and its founder, Nikolay Evdokimov, have been sued by the U.S. SEC for alleged illegal involvement in digital token offerings that raised $665 million. In a separate lawsuit last year, a former CEO of an ICOBox subsidiary claimed the group's "main shareholders" were "all funded by Russian money laundered through bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies".

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.
