SYNDICATED RADIO SHOW HOST "ERSKINE"​ INTERVIEWS THE INFILTRATOR"Erskine", the host of the syndicated "Truth Express" radio show, interviewed me about what I think is one of the most significant obstacles to success in the war on drugs, CORRUPTION. Nothing frustrates me more than the corruption that undermines the valiant efforts of front-line law enforcement officers, and in far too many countries, enables the destruction of the rule of law. Honduras is a "poster child" example of the horribly corrosive impact of corruption on humanity, but there is a long list of countries that suffer a similar record."Erskine" gives me far too much credit for my contribution to the war on drugs. Although I'm grateful for his praise, there are hundreds of other public and private sector servants that have done as much, and in many cases far more, to try to do the right thing. I'm just glad I got through my public service alive. Unfortunately, many have not. We need to remember them all.If you haven't been to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. and seen the limestone walls that recognize the more than 22,000 US law enforcement officers who made the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty, I urge you to make that journey. As I walked the grounds, I saw the names of too many friends with whom I had the honor of serving. They were far greater men and women than me. I think of them often, as I know my colleagues in law enforcement also do each day.Below is a link to an excerpt of my interview with "Erskine". My very best to you all. ... See MoreSee Less

KEYNOTE 2022 COMMONWEALTH FINANCIAL ANNUAL CONFERENCEIt was a privilege to deliver the final Keynote at the 2022 Commonwealth Financial Annual Conference in San Diego this past week. Getting the opportunity to share time and information with the roughly 2,000 attendees of this conference was very rewarding.In addition to delivering a Keynote, I had the privilege of attending a VIP breakfast with about 125 conference goers that were, in an informal and intimate setting, given the chance to ask me questions - no holds barred. Our conversation ranged from discussions about the realities of working within the underworld in a long-term undercover capacity, my near-death experience undercover at the hands of law enforcement corruption, having my first book (NY Times Bestseller THE INFILTRATOR) become the basis for an internationally released film, starring Bryan Cranston, and the plans underway for Bryan to portray me in a sequel film based on my new book (THE BETRAYAL).Senior executives of Commonwealth Financial and all the attendees were extremely considerate and kept my appearance at the conference under wraps until the last minute, in consideration for my security concerns. They were a total pleasure to work with. I am so grateful for their professionalism and extraordinary consideration.I can't thank the senior management of Commonwealth Financial enough for giving me the opportunity to contribute to the success of their amazing conference. It was a wonderful experience, sharing time with many extraordinary professionals. ... See MoreSee Less

DARK WEB CAN'T HIDE FROM THE IRSThis week, the Tampa Bay Times and other media outlets published my latest article heralding the computer and forensic investigative skills demonstrated by Special Agents of the IRS Criminal Investigations division in a case that resulted in the seizure of $3.36 billion worth of Bitcoin from a computer hacker. It's also proof positive in support of my prior article detailing why the public needs to grow up and stop vilifying the budget increases approved for the IRS pursuant to the Inflation Reduction Act. If you're an honest taxpayer and you're tired of paying more than your fair share in tax, it defies logic that you wouldn't want the IRS to receive funding that would enable them to go after mega tax cheats. It's popular and childish to claim the increased IRS budget will be used to go after low-income earners. If you have that fear, the best investment of your time is to let your elected officials know that you demand they do their oversight duties and periodically hold hearings requiring the IRS to explain how they've used the additional funding, and requiring them to prove they've devoted the additional funding to go after major tax evaders. The IRS should also use some of that additional funding to improve their taxpayer service resources. Require them to hire more employees to correctly answer the questions of taxpayers otherwise frustrated by having to deal with the agency through a maze of tutorials, rather than a living/breathing tax professional.Below is a link to my article about the latest success achieved by the IRS, despite their drastic lack of adequate resources. It's IRS prosecutions like this that the public should recognize can only be accomplishment by the unique talents of the highly skilled forensic accountants and criminal investigators within the IRS:www.robertmazur.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/Tampa-Bay-Times-11.09.22-IRS-3.36-Billion-Seizure.pdf ...

PITTSBURG NEWS STATION INTERVIEWS THE INFILTRATORIn this interview, I offered listeners in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio my opinion that, despite the valiant efforts of front line law enforcement officers, our current game plan in the war on drugs is failing. Unfortunately, our national leadership continues to do the same thing year after year, naively expecting a different outcome. The blueprint of our plan to fight this war needs change.The reality is that less than 2% of the criminal proceeds of the underworld are identified and seized by governments around the world each year. That is undeniable. I've given this unfortunate reality a lot of thought and offered an outline of how, in my view, we can dramatically identify and seize much larger portions of organized crimes' riches:kyc360.riskscreen.com/article/seriously-attacking-real-money-laundering-a-simple-solution-to-a-co...During the interview, we discussed the fact that the exponential wealth of organized crime has enabled them to buy countries, like the fire sale of Honduras made during the reign of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez. Although he, his brother, and a room full of Honduran Senators now face the better part of their remaining lives in a U.S. prison, they led a reign of terror for decades, pumping illegal drugs on the streets of the U.S., while they simultaneously deprived their citizens of any hope of a descent life.We discussed the dangers law enforcement officers face working in deep undercover roles, and what often motivates them to take that risk. In my case, as I detail in my new book, THE BETRAYAL, information became my heroin, causing me to feel that I was failing my mission unless the next piece of information I got covertly was bigger than the one before. That's what blinded me to the risk I faced at the hands of a corrupt officer that worked in my office while he was on the payroll of the Cali Cartel. A "friend" and brother officer sold me out and nearly got me killed. Despite that unthinkable scenario, I reminded listeners that "life is a bell curve" for every profession, so the horrific acts of a few bad cops should never give rise to the public forgetting that 99.99% of the law enforcement community faithfully serves the public and puts their lives on the line for us every day. ...
