New York and London (PRWEB) June 2, 2008
Acclaimed Financial crime consultant, Kenneth Rijock, will be presenting a World-Check Power Breakfast in New York on the 16th of June.
Author of the widely-read "From a Different Angle," World-Check's early warning feature column, Rijock is a former banking lawyer, and former money launderer. He spent the 1980s as a money launderer and advisor to Colombian drug traffickers, until he was arrested and served a U.S. federal prison sentence for racketeering and money laundering. While serving his sentence, he assisted with the first joint Swiss-American money laundering investigation of bankers and lawyers, which resulted in a major seizure of the proceeds of crime. With more than 25 years of experience in the field, he consults with law enforcement and the financial services industry. His extensive experience in money laundering tactics is now used to train U.S. and Canadian law enforcement and intelligence services.
Rijock will cover the tradecraft of money laundering followed by emerging fraud and money laundering threats in 2008. Daniel Peak, a World-Check consultant, will present a seminar examining politically exposed customers and the risk they represent to financial institutions. There will be a Question and Answer session after each session. To attend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
