We have a history of working fraud cases involving the recovery of assets in Fraudulent MTN and REO cases as well as Nigerian Fraud and High Yield Investment Fraud cases.

To recover funds from professional international financial thieves requires you to be able to locate the asset and then make the thief want to pay you the money back. Through experience we have developed a process that has proven to be successful.
The International Financial System has requirements for you to receive or send Funds. For you to be able to receive your funds you must first have an approved account and you must have had an enhanced due diligence report meeting all the criteria that the banking system requires. The security review must cover all individuals on the pay order and also all board members of it includes a corporation as well as a complete review of the origin of the funds.
IDRC completes this research and compiles the required report for compliance with the strict new financial crimes and money laundering regulations. No funds will ever be received without this requirement being met. The banks will not instruct you on what is required. They expect you to know what is required of you. This is why 90% of people completing large transactions never receive their funds.
For you to be paid any large amount of money and be able to have access to your funds you MUST have this process completed prior to the closing of the transaction. Without having an approved account available before the completion of your transaction will prevent you from receiving your payout or settlement of your transaction. International banking regulations prevents the bank from even speaking to you about your account once they have submitted a Suspicious Activities Report. Your calling the bank and asking about your frozen funds in many cases becomes the probable cause for them to move your accounts from being frozen to being seized.
After the money laundering laws were changed a few years ago bankers can now be held criminally and civilly liable if they facilitate a transaction that is considered money laundering. A bank can now freeze your funds with only a suspicion of a fraudulent transaction and they have been advised that it is better for them to error on the side of caution. Anyone in the banking chain from a teller, supervisor, manger or fraud department can lock down your transaction and your funds.
