Free asset search tools range from seeking information about shell companies to detecting real estate ownership in New York City. At “CorporationWiki” you may possibly gather information about shell companies & at “ACRIS” you can search for NYC real estate ownership. I mentioned CorporationWiki & ACRIS at “A Low-Cost Asset Search” or “Asset Searches & Open Source Intelligence” which list more asset search tools. In addition, you can search leaked documents by using free asset search tools.
Computer hackers or informants may supply journalists with stolen banking; attorney-client privileged; or other confidential documents. When the stolen documents concern the public, “there is a significant legal distinction between stealing documents and disclosing documents that someone else had stolen previously.” Democratic Nat’l Comm. v. Russian Fed’n, 392 F. Supp. 3d 410, 431 (S.D.N.Y. 2019). As a result, journalists sometimes disclose leaked documents.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (“ICIJ”) for example, publishes its Offshore Leaks Database. Consequently, you can use this database to run free searches of specific persons or business entities. Although this database does not include banking information or e-mails, it has leaked information regarding more than 785,000 offshore entities. Likewise, you can search the Distributed Denial of Secrets website. Besides documents stolen from the Cayman National Bank, Isle of Man by hacker Phineas Fisher, this website has many more leaked documents.
