While Florida is a hotbed for financial fraud, it is only a microcosm of what is going on in the world…human trafficking, medical fraud, rate rigging, advanced fee and investment scams.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 12, 2015
JoTo PR is announcing that they have signed on Actionable Intelligence Technologies (AIT) as a new client. AIT, a Virginia tech company, has created a new tool to help police take down white collar criminals. In the last fiscal year in Florida, people lost an average of $3.2 million dollars for each of the 37 people who were convicted of fraud. Last year in Florida alone there were 30 separate fraud investigations.
Florida is one of the nation’s hot spots for financial fraud. While courts order restitution to be paid to the victims, according to the Chief of the Bureau of Financial Investigations Robert Kynoch very little of it is ever returned. In most cases by the time that action is undertaken, the money has been dissipated. Most criminals spend the money they steal as soon as it comes in, therefore faster tracking and response tools are needed to aid authorities.
AIT has developed new analytical technology that will help authorities to analyze data such as financial records exponentially faster than they could in the past. Since 1998, AIT has specialized in fighting against financial crime by delivering the technology and expert knowledge to detect, investigate and permanently dismantle the criminal organization.
Their new program Comprehensive Financial Investigative Solution is designed as a purpose-built financial investigation system for use by law enforcement and regulatory agencies to perform rapid assembly and data capture. CFIS has become the standard investigative tool used by federal, state and local law enforcement all over the country. It could make a huge impact in Florida and help save police valuable time in the fight against white collar crime.
“While Florida is a hotbed for financial fraud, it is only a microcosm of what is going on in the world…human trafficking, medical fraud, rate rigging, advanced fee and investment scams," said JoTo PR CEO KJ Helms. “A technology that is a proven tool to help authorities fight financial crimes will revolutionize and streamline the pursuit of these criminals.”
