MORE GREAT TIME WITH THOSE ON THE FRONT LINES

I was blessed today to share insights with many public servants on the front lines in law enforcement. I had the privilege today to present a 3 hour master class on money laundering to city, state and federal law enforcement officers in Austin, Texas at the 2019 Financial Crimes Conference hosted by the Texas Attorney General's Office. During the master class, we discussed:

- Details about "The Infiltrator" story, including the money laundering
techniques used by the Medellin cartel and institutions that laundered
their funds
- Money laundering techniques exposed in prosecutions of international
institutions
- The roles played by key professionals in the management of Cartel profits
- How Black Money Markets operate around the globe
- Red flags tied to Black Money Market transactions
- Trade based money laundering
- The secrets about over and under invoicing exports and imports
- New trends in money laundering
- Why China is a huge player in the money laundering world today
- How terrorist organizations have aligned with drug cartels to finance
terrorism
- Tactics used by defense counsel to attack prosecutions developed
through undercover operations
- Cryptocurrency and its place in the money laundering world

The conference agenda included many presenters with significant experience conducting money laundering and related investigations. I'm so grateful that the Texas Attorney General's gave me this opportunity to share time with these great public servants who relentlessly serve our nation.

It was wonderful to share time with roughly 700 attendees at Verafin's annual conference held in Washington DC today. I had the privilege of being the keynote speaker at Verafin's 2019 conference. It was so rewarding to present to so many AML professionals intently engaged in fighting fraud and money laundering. At the conference, Verafin staff shared information about the unique features of their cloud based tech support for institutions that capitalizes on section 314 (b) of the Patriot act, enabling institutions to collaborate relative to their fraud & money laundering related alerts. This concept is critical to the AML fight. Supporting Verafin was a total pleasure.

GETTING BACK TO THE FRONT LINES
It was an honor to deliver training and share insights with narcotics law enforcement officers assigned to various city, state and federal agencies today at a seminar hosted by the Ocala, Florida Police Department. Throughout the day, I had the privilege of providing training on the issues of investigating money laundering offenses, managing informants and conducting undercover operations. It was refreshing to interact with so many enthusiastic public servants that are so eager to serve their communities and the nation. I'm very grateful to have been given this opportunity. Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn and Captain Corey Taylor of the Ocala Police Department deserve a special thanks for enabling this training session, and for their constant efforts to ensure that officers in the Central Florida area receive the best possible training.

Today I published an article about techniques used in the precious metals business to launder tens of millions at a time. I posted it on my LinkedIn page and invite you to check it out. It offers insights about how executives in some international banks and businesses cater to the money laundering needs of the underworld:

The most dangerous commodity delivered around the globe by drug cartels and other criminal organizations is corruption. We see the effects of that within many nations in the Americas, but often forget how dramatically it also impacts honest citizens in Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere. Nations in Africa and the Middle East are critical to the flow of illicit fortunes, which is why their leadership is constantly tempted to join the parade of corruption. I urge you to follow the reporting of the Organized Crime & Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP). Please read this article to get an appreciation for why there is massive poverty in countries, while a very small percentage of the very rich control the overwhelming majority of wealth. It can happen anywhere:
