    How's it going fellow money makers?

    So, I have come across a business opportunity that requires some....anonymity. I have been pondering all day as to how I could go about moving my money around. I obviously have thought about off-shore accounts who don't share any information with the U.S, however I have not found much information. Now, I'm not asking for a tutorial, but better yet, some ideas that can help me get this done. I've been looking into banks in the UAE, Singapore, Japan, etc...

    Anyone have any banks they can suggest. Should I open a corporation in one of those countries, and operate through there? Thanks in advance for any information.

    I am in the same boat as you. I have came across many sites that help you with this, i am just trying to narrow it down since i know most are scams. One that looks good is http://www.offshoreformations247.com . There are a few others that members here recommended to first hand in other threads.

    Firstly, absolutely use a company name...nothing in your personal name is secure. Secondly, check out offshoresimple I've dealt through them before and very easy to work with.

    I suggest you have a look at panama bearer share corporations with a bank account elsewhere...like the seychelles etc all tied into a private interest foundation....extremely difficult to pierce the privacy on.

    Also, offshore alert and anyone that wants to sell you something look there name up on that.

    Cheers

    I have some years experience with stocks/forex and Panama is the highest regarded place to bank these days when privacy is key. Their legal courts will never look into your bank account details ever unless you are ''funding terrorism/drug smuggling or money laundering'' and bankers get harsh sentences if they ever do divulge any of your information. Tax evasion is not a crime in panama.

    What if you have a passport/ID of that country? Does it matter if you use your name or a corporation?

    Beneficiaries names will always be visible during international transfers, so a simple offshore corporate setup will not be sufficient for anonymity.

    Thanks for the tips with the countries guys. I know this isn't going to be easy, but if terrorists, crime organizations, and other entities can shuffle money with no issue, I know I can :) Keep the tips coming guys, I appreciate it all!

    Well my advice to you lines up with some other members on this thread. I would seriously look into
    investing in Panama. Their much more private and secure. In the end it is much more worth it. Oh and
    registering a offshore business is best.

    I could do a BST for it, but it wouldn't sell too well because to set up things correctly minimum deposits would need to be $10K or higher and dudes on here are asking what do with their last $50 soooooo, yeah, that sucks.. I can link people with accounts in several countries, passports, credit/debits with no names or limits on cash withdrawals, etc. but again, all of these things require a hefty financial wherewithal.

    The easiest and cheapest way is to get UK corp and bank account in cyprus. All in all it will cost about $2,000.

    Keep in mind that you will still need to be the Beneficial owner so you can get a bank card in your name.

    EU merchant accounts is getting more difficult these days, but it's still doable. Biggest roadblock is most of them want 90 days worth of processing history. But their some tricks to over come that

    You could use a fake persona to open a liberty reserve bank account, which would suit your needs. The credentials they request are few and easy to replicate.

    If you`re really paranoid you could move your $ into bitcoins and then transfer that into the liberty reserve account, but I doubt anybody`s going to trace you back from liberty reserve that easily, and the bitcoin exchange shaves money ridiculously. I would just use a paypal to liberty reserve service. I forget which one I looked at back then, but there are more than a few. Just remember to always use a proxy.

    Also remember that the more middlemen you use, the more funds get shaved per transfer.

    From liberty reserve you can get a VCC and either use that to validate an anonymous paypal account, or just use the VCC on its own.

    Also, if you are making money from IM right now, you could see if you could get some of your affiliate money, etc. deposited directly into your liberty reserve account to avoid the costly process of moving your funds from your bank account to your liberty reserve account.

    Once you have an anonymous Paypal account, you can do pretty much anything with it (opening other bank accounts, getting credit cards, accepting large-scale transactions, etc.)

    Hope this helps.
