Offshore Banking, Identity theft, Fraud and Anonymous Surfing Scams Demystified on Privacy Web Site

Share Article

Power Privacy publishes insight and tips on offshore banking and anonymous surfing, and details the inner workings of scams, identity theft and fraud - and how perpetrators get caught.

For those who take their personal and financial privacy seriously, a new web site details the latest technologies and techniques for keeping a low profile on the Internet and in one’s financial dealings.

Members of Power Privacy ( learn the little-known secrets of anonymous surfing, anonymous email, remailers and encryption, and why privacy seekers can no longer rely on these technologies. The site also skewers conventional wisdom of financial privacy structures like offshore banking and second passports.

“It’s a very different world today than when offshore banking, asset protection trusts and other structures were fashionable. Or when the books were written that popularized their use for tax planning or other financial privacy,” said Power Privacy co-founder and publisher Jon Winthrop. “This is timely new information for post-Patriot Act era scrutiny of assets and Internet and offline activities, and it’s particularly applicable to those pursuing PT (‘perpetual traveler’/‘prior taxpayer’/‘permanent tourist’) lifestyles.”

The site details the leading mistakes people make that compromise their identity when setting up supposedly anonymous offshore holdings, and why complicated offshore banking structures rarely assure complete anonymity. Innovative directions are given for setting up maildrops without fake ID, PayPal verification in any name and other secrets of successful offshore e-businesses.

The site also provides insight into the inner workings of scams, identity theft, fraud, pretexting, phishing and money laundering, and how perpetrators get caught.

Subscribers to Power Privacy can access the site’s library of ‘how-to’ articles and reviews of related products and services, listen to interviews with specialists and download relevant documents and special software. Subscribers can also follow trends and discuss latest privacy-related technological developments like RFID or Tor in private forums with fellow privacy enthusiasts and experts.

A directory of trusted privacy-related product and service providers is a cornerstone of the site. “Thousands of companies offer to set up mail drops, offshore banking, foundations, trusts or other financial privacy constructs for clients. But many of these providers are fraudulent,” said Winthrop. “Identifying the legitimate providers from the ones that take clients’ money and run is a large part of Power Privacy’s value, and has saved subscribers thousands.”

Upcoming special features on Power Privacy include a report on avoiding PayPal account limitations, an exclusive interview with privacy author Clare Wolfe, an insider’s look at offshore banking and review of the new Torpark anonymous browser.

Monthly access to Power Privacy is $29 USD. No long-term contract is required. A lifetime subscription is $295 USD. Prices are time-limited offers.
