The Overview is a summary of who the culprits are, the other entities involved and what is known about their history, including criminal activity and legal penalties. Connected Brands deals with other companies and entities that have been associated with the culprit. Since stolen money is often laundered through various channels, these associations are not only relevant but can be crucial. Alleged Owners/Operators are the people and organizations behind the fake broker. Frauds often operate as a kind of shell game where funds are hidden in multiple counterfeit businesses – all of these must be identified for a successful investigation.
Similarly, we also identify Payment Processor Providers and Technology Providers, which may either be a part of the criminal operation or not be connected but can have vital information. We analyze the main company and its history, which can elucidate many of the other details in the report.
A Cyber Intelligence Report has a Persons of Interest page in which we reveal the identities, locations and photographs of people associated with the cyber crime. We also highlight regulator warnings about the broker as well as relevant media excerpts to put our findings in a larger context. The report also shows Lawsuits and court activity, as well as Corporate Registrations for more data about the suspected fraud.
