As countries around the world close their borders for international travel from badly affected countries, are airport transits a threat?

CoNet Section: 

In this page from the on-line resource "Don't be a victim: the Young Person's Guide to the Risks of Financial Crime," the financial crime risks facing everyone, young, old and that huge bit in the middle, arising from the Coronavirus and CoVid-19 pandemic are explained clearly.

Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals service has issued guidelines for witnesses who, because of CoVid-19, give evidence from a remote location. They will be expected to have regard to the same duty to tell the truth as if they were in a witness box in a courtroom.

CoNet Section: 

If it were not for one grossly irresponsible group, Malaysia's anti-viral policies would have been remarkably successful. But the long term effects might be problematic.

CoNet Section: 

This spear-phishing spam-scam is so amateur that some people might actually think it's real. It isn't.

FCRO Subsection: 

A man who can be identified only as B4 left the UK to go to Syria to join al Qaeda, the UK government alleges. A citizen of Libya, he took UK citizenship in addition. The UK Home Department (part of the Home Office) decided to cancel his British citizenship and passport. He has appealed and, at the same time, applied for anonymity. His appeal is stayed pending a determination of his application for legal aid.

CoNet Section: 

Société Générale Securities Australia is subject to criminal charges brought by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

SocGenSecAus? If you think that's silly, the acronym used by ASIC is worse: "SGSAPL". We'll just stick wiith "SocGen Securities".

BIScom Subsection: 

Case Summary: 

Over a period of some 13 months, a remittance agent in New Zealand brought more than NZD53 million into the country for a single customer while paying little or no attention to the regulatory requirements imposed on it by laws designed to detect and deter money laundering. The case is interesting because it is brought against a company and its owner and another person.

Type of conduct: 
Money Laundering

It's incredible - a tiny bar that has no nameplate, that is hidden behind a door bearing the sign "no admittance" and holding only 25 people in an unfashionable district of Kuala Lumpur's city centre is famous. It's such a cool, almost magical, place that it's the kind of place you keep for special occasions. It's regularly featured in "Best Bars" in all kinds of magazines and, even, seat-back glossies in airlines.

And, sadly, in just a few days, it will be gone.

There's no point in discussing this at length. A spam arrived. It's spreading fear and it's a fraud.

County Lines, money mules, identity fraud, sextortion, revenge porn, coronavirus scams

These are just a handful of the subjects in this brand new, pocket money, online training course for those aged between 12 and 24, produced by the leading financial crime risk and compliance training company, Vortex Centrum Limited who have been delivering high quality information services training to financial institutions and government departments all over the world since 1999.

Hotels.Com already allows cancellation of bookings without penalty in many of the properties it advertises. But the unprecedented range of restrictions being placed on travellers, often at short notice, means that contracts are, to all intents and purposes, being frustrated by operation of law. It's not, in strict terms, force majeur although many are calling it that or, even, an Act of God. No, it's not that either.

Hotels.com has produced an excellent analysis of exactly what the US blockade of travellers from some parts of the EU means. The notice addresses many of the misconceptions and false arguments that are popular on much social media.

The British Medical Journal is the official publication - and mouthpiece - of the British Medical Association. As the CoVid-19 problem moves from epidemic to official pandemic according to the World Health Organisation, official advice is often drowned out by misinformation on social media. It's made worse by the fact that the problem has also become an opportunity for criminals - only this morning we received a spam claiming to advertise the only face-mask that offers protection against the virus. So, in this, the first of what will be a series of items on those parts of the authoritative news that doesn't reach the attention threshold of the superficial media, we look at what the BMA/BMJ says about beards in the healthcare sector.
