It is very rare that Kroll can speak openly about our cases or clients. However, with the permission of our client, we will provide the full story of how we identified, investigated, and helped our client successfully recover from one of the UK’s biggest trading frauds. We will demonstrate how a gang of rogue traders stole over $150m from our client and how Kroll traced the stolen funds around the world using innovative legal processes and investigative techniques. From trucks full of US dollars to antique furniture and rare Ferraris – this presentation will give you a unique insight into the inner workings of a global asset trace. We will also share the latest developments in the case and how the fraudsters’ laundering methodologies have been replicated – on a far bigger scale – in other cases.
Discussion around whether modern fraud involves 'new' types of fraud or whether it's really just the same thing happening again, using modern technology? Ponzi schemes remain an issue, albeit with just more sophistication. Is cyber fraud really just blackmail using technology?
Discussion around the practicalities of freezing unusual assets – cryptocurrencies, art works, livestock, and anything else
Interesting aspects of the current law on bribery that can be useful in fraud litigation
