Over the last 3 years Jakal Intel has OSINT support to a number of third parties including bloggers, investors, corporate service providers and investigative journalists primarily in relation to investment fraud, scams and schemes.
Moving forward the group will seek to apply and integrate OSINT and other investigative techniques with traditional corporate finance and investment banking services.

Gambian fake banks
In early Dec 2019, OCCRP released a series of articles covering the ‘fake’ Gambian offshore banking sector. Well worth a read, starting with this article occrp.org/en/29leaks/fancy-gambian-paper
More than 150 worthless shells were flogged into the market of these 17 fake Gambian banks managed to obtain SWIFT codes.
Turns out half of those fake banks that were able to secure a SWIFT code were either a customer of Probanx’s software or they shelf companies pre-packaged by Probanx for sale.

Q: What do you get when you bring together an Irishman (unhinged ex pill trafficker, part time CIA undercover informant), Canadian and a phantom Japanese Investment banker living in Taiwan, running a few dodgy shells and web domains collectively as a banking empire?

All roads lead to Rome…..except for shady FX, Binary Options operators and the like…..those roads lead to a mail drop in the Marshall Islands
The shell game
Highlighted tweet of the week (or until I remember to replace it with next weeks tweet)
14 Feb 2020 - I’m embedding this even before I’ve read the article. Canadian sleuther @run_btc posted a monster 10.000 word article on Medium. Last year we spent many hours turning rocks over on QuadrigaCX. I’m pretty sure we hold some sort of record for longest time discussing a stove (anyone who has looked at QCX would know which stove I’m taking about). Anyone that stumbles across this site click through and read Run’s article - it will be well worth it.
