Join us for this exclusive webinar and get a behind-the-scenes look at how the FBI conducts criminal investigations, from the initial receipt of a complaint all the way through to trial. Transnational organized crime and money laundering are two of the FBI’s top investigative priorities. With countless victims, they pose serious threats to the national and economic security of the United States. This FBI case presentation provides an in-depth look at a multi-subject, international fraud ring that was investigated by the FBI Tampa Division. The presentation will cover the many different schemes the subjects used to defraud victims and how they laundered money, along with covering the trial of three of the main subjects as well as post-trial conspiracies (including a foiled murder-for-hire plot). Learning Objectives: 1. To understand how criminals launder money, including how money laundering organizations are set up and how money launderers are recruited. 2. To understand how the FBI conducts a criminal investigation, from initial receipt of complaint, through all aspects of the investigation, and ultimately through trial. 3. To understand the tactics bad actors use to identify potential victims and defraud those victims, and to provide tips on how to protect yourself from falling victim to a scam.
