Description: Financial crime is a constant whatever the era but in times of crisis criminals become even more creative. Coronavirus ‘cures’, PPEs, testing and vaccines all present attractive opportunities for fraudsters to take advantage of our collective anxiety by selling fakery. Ponzi schemes, a ubiquitous phenomenon, often come to light in times of financial crisis since old investors demand redemption and new investors are hard for fraudsters to find. Finally, in the pandemic, trade-based money laundering, another common criminal scheme, can be used to greater effect due to price gyrations and scarcity in previously available goods and commodities.
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Distinctions between and among different types of fraud, money laundering and other financial crime;
  • How to recognize commonly used financial crime schemes;
  • Why red flags are crucial to legal practitioners in banking, securities, contract, M&A, and consumer fields;
 
Topics are targeted to attorneys in the regulatory, compliance, litigation and criminal defense (particularly white collar defense).
