Thought of the Day

A week away for a string of public holidays here in KL and it seemed churlish not to take off the odd days that weren't. A look down my LinkedIn feed over the first coffee of the week and I am taken by surprise by... nothing. Hamster, meet wheel. Fads and fashion and renaming long established stuff doesn't make it news. What's worse is the constant repetition of the same stories where only the names have been changed proves one thing: the Financial Crime Industry has spent a quarter of a century bludgeoning people with information but it hasn't worked."

We wish all of our subscribers and readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We are taking a break until 3rd January - or so it will seem. What we are actually doing is suspending publication of editorial while we do some major work on the back-end of the platform. For the past three years or so, we've been in beta testing and now (we think) we've got everything working properly and we can, finally, launch the full site with all the features we've been developing all that time.

GlobalKYC.com will continue to function normally: you can sign up and post details of freezing, seizing, confiscation and arrest (marine and aviation) orders and they will appear as usual. And of course, the new Suspicious Crypto-Asset Register will remain open: we expect a huge increase in the number of frauds and extortion attempts using crypt-asset accounts from now until after Chinese New Year (early February).

You'll notice some changes happening during the editorial hiatus while we turn on various functions and services and, also, make changes to presentation, move things around and so on.

Once we come back, we'll be a full-service website with sections for a general readership, specialised professional areas (including financial crime) and crowdsourced KYC information.

We look forward to seeing you on 2nd January.

Sadly, RNLI is competing for donations with wall to wall T.V. advertising characterised by re-purposed voice over artists who usually sell insurance policies or funeral plans for pensioners and are now guilt-tripping an entire population by repeatedly showing e.g. images of a baby with tubes taped to its face to pay administrators salaries in the multi hundreds of thousands. There are dozens pleading for them and only the RNLI pointing out that its crews are volunteers and face death every time they go out. When you give this Christmas, choose carefully and don't be manipulated by sophisticated marketing.
