Scamming the World: SE Asia’s Boiler Rooms

mm

Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia are hotbeds of criminality, places where expatriate investment fraudsters operate boiler rooms with seeming impunity as they set about swindling foreigners living in the world’s major countries, many of whom are pensioners.

Investigative journalist Andrew Drummond was so successful at naming and shaming many of those responsible that he received multiple death threats and defamation lawsuits, forcing him to leave Thailand and relocate to his native Britain.

At this month’s OffshoreAlert Conference in London, Drummond and Australia-based investigator Ken Gamble, of IFW Global, will take you inside the region’s boiler rooms, discussing the pay-offs to police, judges, and others in authority, assaults, murders, and related issues.

The 7th Annual OffshoreAlert Conference Europe on financial intelligence and investigations will take place at the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, in London, on November 12-13th, 2018.
