Discussed today are Arizona’s attempt to stop cross-border crime and Minneapolis Ponzi schemer Trevor Cook:
- “Goddard launches plan to fight money laundering; Rocky Point Police Chief ambushed” states that Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard has adopted a new anti-money laundering plan. This plan is part of Arizona’s effort to combat narco-traffickers engaged in various cross-border crimes. As “A Strategy Of Seizing Sinaloa Drug Cartel Assets” suggested, asset forfeiture can be a critically important element in an anti-money laundering program.
- The June 16th “Asset Search News Roundup” last mentioned securities fraudster and Ponzi schemer Trevor Cook. The Cook receiver recovering receivership estate assets on behalf of Cook’s damaged investors filed a motion and supporting declaration for the reimbursement of expenses incurred this past May. The Court’s June 22nd docket entry additionally reflects that Mr. Cook is next scheduled to be sentenced in his criminal case on July 26, 2010 at 3:00 PM.
