Using COVID as cover for stealing client’s funds

international arbitration

CRA was retained by a law firm representing an Asian-based client who had been defrauded of over $20M in goods that were paid for yet never delivered by South American nationals living in the US who claimed that COVID was preventing them from arranging shipping to Asia. CRA’s investigation uncovered over 20 suspect business entities in the US and South America set up by a registered agent who served time in federal prison for conspiracy charges. In addition, CRA identified approximately $3M in luxury vehicles, and over $12M in real estate purchases in the name of shell entities.
