|Money Laundering; the mysterious enterprise which is the world's third largest business, surpassed only by oil and foreign exchange.
The clandestine world of money laundering was penetrated in the late 1980s by an aggressive and covert handful of law enforcement officers. One of those officers was Michael Hearns.
For 10 years Hearns lived in a world awash in an endless stream of cocaine, and duffel bags crammed with illicit dollars. At times the task seemed insurmountable as the cash was entrusted to him to be rinsed into clean ledgers, bank accounts, precious metal commodities, and untraceable trails of greenbacks. Now retired from the undercover money laundering business, Hearns is now sharing his hard earned knowledge and vast experience with other law enforcement agencies and the financial world.
Officer Hearns' lectures and class materials are tailored for each institution and agency to specifically address and inform for the needs of each individual organization.
After attending a seminar by Officer Hearns your personnel will be able to understand the enigmatic nature of money laundering.
Just a sample of some of the other aspects which are taught:
* How money laundering occurs and why.
* Signs of money laundering.
* Multiple techniques of the money launderers are revealed.
* Nomenclature, slang, and tendencies of the money launderers .
* Ethnic groups closely tied to the laundering of money are highlighted.
* Black Markets, and Parallel markets as well as the "La Vuelta" are explained.
* Secretive Asian "Fei Chein" or "Flying money" is divulged.
It's an intense subject, but the course is entertaining as well. Aside from the course topics, Officer Hearns shares many anecdotes from his decade long foray in the murky and dangerous arena of laundering money. His curriculum is peppered with tales of corruption , mistrust , betrayal, and the emotional swings of watching partners go to jail, and tragically seeing others face an untimely death.
Is your institution able to show that your personnel have been adequately trained to recognize money laundering and stave off FDIC fines? Is your agency ready to combat and effect asset seizures against organized crime groups?
Michael Hearns has lived to tell.......and now he is.
