Follow the money - sound advice whether you're a vice or fraud cop, a tax man, an investigative reporter... or a Leverage crew!
This product contains a fascinating look at just some of the nefarious methods used by crooks - often the white-collar criminals found in board rooms and legal firms and financial houses - to salt away their ill-gotten gains where the taxman cannot get it and thieves (they hope) cannot break in and steal it. At least, not until a passing Crew does the honours.
Art fraud, art theft, bribery, creative accounting, credit card fraud and identity theft, embezzling, insider trading, insurance fraud, money laundering, Ponzi schemes and pyramids, stock fraud, tax evasion, unethical business practices... it's all here, in sufficient detail to inspire your plots but not, I'm glad to say, in quite enough detail to be a complete primer in how to pull it off yourself!
If you've thought that these sorts of white-collar crimes were a bit too cerebral for you and your Crew to handle convincingly, read this and think again. If you need even more inspiration, read John Grisham's The Firm! Or the newspapers... many of the examples given are real-world crimes, along with neat notes on how you might make use of the concepts, if not the crimes themselves, as you devise the next Job.
