Digital Currency Investigations. Due to the volatility of bitcoins, the Bitcoin system is most commonly used solely as a transfer vehicle and not to “store” money. Bitcoin exchanges are not meaningfully regulated. While this is part of Bitcoin’s appeal, it does make it easier to get defrauded. Cachet International’s investigative services now include Bitcoin Locating and Activity Reports.

Bank Asset Traces. Ordinarily, we will report our findings in an intelligence report unless Client has ordered from us a Litigation Support report.

  • Intelligence reports by their very nature are NOT suited to being presented to the courts, and only a skilled asset recovery lawyer will know how to use them effectively in preparing his case for the courts.

  • Returned to Client: Specifics will be provided to Client upon his request.

  • Fees upon request. Litigation Support report: Fees upon request for specific cases only.

Bank Asset Traces in the Name of a Sovereign State (e.g., searching whether the central bank of sovereign country “X” has an account with a bank or banks in the Subject country ).

  • Returned to Client: Specifics will be provided to Client upon his request.

  • Fee upon request, per name of the sovereign state per target country. Litigation Support report: Fees upon request for specific cases only.

Comprehensive Asset Reports combine Bank Asset traces with fixed (portable) asset traces.

  • Fee upon request, per Individual or Company name to be searched. Litigation Support report: Fees upon request for specific cases only.

  • Comprehensive Asset Report (liquid and fixed assets) is defined as follows:

Fixed assets: Land, property, boats, aircraft, corporations, etc.

Liquid assets: Bank Assets including stocks, shares, trusts and brokerages, where possible.

Background investigation of Subject individual or Subject company to identify financial or corporate links to other jurisdictions (lateral links).

Global Asset Report, defined below, is a very powerful asset tracing tool that we recommend in the following instances: (1) Our Client has no lead to where the Subject individual or company may have assets, or (2) our Client has information that gives them reason to believe the Subject individual or company has assets in more than three countries.

  • A Global Asset report is designed to identify, where possible, all assets relating to the Subject individual, company or sovereign state, utilizing the information we are given by the Client at the time of instructions. This would include property, stocks, shares, trusts, bonds, land, corporate affiliations and any intelligence that may lead to other possible assets such as equities, safety deposit boxes, and bank accounts etc. More details will be provided to Client only for a specific case, after we have received a case history from Client.

  • Fee upon request, per Individual or Company name to be searched. Litigation Support report: Fees upon request for specific cases only.

Monthly Activity Reports. This investigation can be carried out only in a second step investigation, after we have identified an account or accounts in a Subject individual’s or company’s name during the first step investigation, which is the actual Bank Asset trace. The fees for monthly account activities vary and will depend on a number of defining elements. More details will be provided to Client only for a specific case, after we have received a case history from Client.

  • Fee upon request, per month and per account.

  • Litigation Support report: Fees upon request for specific cases only.

Asset Recovery Assistance: Domestic and International

On a case-by-case basis, following completion of our own asset identification in a Target’s name, we also offer to our clients asset recovery assistance in cooperation with some of the best asset recovery lawyers in the U.S. as well as on-site counsels in the international target jurisdictions, where we have successfully identified bank assets in a Subject individual’s or Subject company’s name. These hand-picked asset recovery lawyers are fully conversant in asset recovery methods, such as Norwich Pharmacal and Intermediary Bank asset recovery procedures. Further, they are experienced in asset freezing procedures, such as Mareva injunctions, Piller orders, ex parte judgments, prejudgment writs of attachment, preliminary injunctions and temporary restraining orders.

These legal procedures render an excellent chance of successful and lawful recovery of a debtor’s or defendant’s assets in U.S. and international courts. Background reference materials will be provided for concrete assignments only.

All Offshore Locations

Identifying the actual, i.e., Beneficial Owners of an offshore company as opposed to the nominee owners, who are simply local employees of a fiduciary company/law firm/business management company that manage the offshore company on behalf of the Beneficial Owners, who wish to remain hidden.

  • Our success rate over the past 17 years: 100%, provided that the Subject individual or company has indeed owned accounts in their name or has companies in their name.

In some select offshore jurisdictions we can offer structured fees for Beneficial Company Ownership investigations. Our findings will be reported in our usual intelligence report.
