    Buying goods on trading platforms like Amazon is a common activity these days – but what do you really know about the company you are buying from?  Graham Barrow, Director of podcast The Dark Money Files and Risk Alert 247 Ltd, will give practical insights into how the new Economic Crime  and Corporate Transparency Act is seeking to plug some of the holes around company formation.  Expect some truly gob smacking examples of how easy it is for fraudsters and money launderers to register multiple companies at Companies House!

    Graham Barrow's bio:

    Graham has worked in financial services for the past twenty-five years, latterly providing subject matter expertise in respect of global financial crime as well as providing in-depth research on UK company formations. Latterly, he has become well known as one half of “The Dark Money Files” podcast alongside his business partner and longstanding veteran of the world of anti-financial crime, Ray Blake.

    He has worked closely with several global investigative journalism consortia helping them to identify and write about organised crime and corruption including the ICIJ and OCCRP. Graham also speaks with authority on the Deutsche Bank Mirror Trades and has recently been closely involved with a Lebanese documentary film maker revealing the deep associations between the UK shell company which allegedly bought the Ammonium Nitrate which blew up with such disastrous consequences in Beirut last August, and a bunch of other UK companies associated with a handful of sanctioned Syrian/Russian dual nationals.

    Graham regularly speaks at in-house and public events to raise awareness of the close links between financial crime and the organised criminal gangs and corrupt individuals who are responsible for so much of the dirty money entering the financial system, most particularly with respect to the UK companies which are often at their heart.
