(This chart identifies alleged members and suspected businesses of the drug trafficking organization discussed at the press release available by clicking here.)

Make flowcharts in your asset search to show how your adversary has hidden money or other assets from you. The flowcharts in your asset search might document that your adversary hid assets through any one or a combination of the following:

  • fraudulent transfers
  • business entities;
  • nominees;
  • foreign bank accounts;
  • trusts;
  • sham loans;
  • multiple jurisdictions; etc.

How your adversary hid assets may become even more apparent to you if you make a flowchart (a.k.a. link chart). A free platform for making flowcharts is at the Visual Investigative Scenarios webpage. It is a good flowcharting tool for tracking assets & cases involving asset recovery.
