Shell Companies and Fraud: An Investigative Primer
May 21, 2013, 12:00PM to 5:00PM
|Details||Unraveling financial schemes often involves tracing a myriad of corporations incorporated across the country and sometimes around the world.
Corporate entities called shells – companies with no significant assets or operations – and the people involved with them are often at the center of plots ranging from bogus investment firms to money-laundering endeavors to pump-and-dump stock scams.
This webinar will help you understand the characteristics of shell companies, their legitimate and illegitimate purposes in the business sector, and methods for backgrounding and connecting intricate webs of firms and individuals scattered around the globe.
This free training with Kelly Carr, a Reynolds Center staffer and freelance investigative journalist whose reporting on the use of shell and shelf companies won a 2012 Gerald Loeb Award, is designed to you understand shell companies and their role in fraud. In this webinar, you’ll also gain tools for tracking corporate investigations in your coverage area.
This one-hour webinar takes place at noon and 4 p.m. ET; attendees can attend either session.
