Swiss Banks.
& other offshore banking countries.
Secrecy.-----. Secret numbered accounts.

The benefits to the bank are far greater than the benefits to the client .
The funds are easy to deposit but very difficult to withdraw.
You can/might be paid the interest accrued but don’t ask for the capital.

This type of banking facilitates crime.( a place to hide criminally obtained monies.)
A. Drug Trafficking , Arms Dealing. International Fraud.
B. Organized Crime. Serious Fraud .
C. Tax Evasion .( Income Tax – V.A.T—Corporation tax. Etc.

60% of the funds held in these banks fall into Categories A & B.
20% of the funds held in these banks fall into Category C.

If you have monies in one of these banks.( either legal or illegal monies.)

Remember.( do not die.)

Even if you have told your wife about your “secret account.” or your children , or solicitor ,or left documents with your Will , it is impossible for them to claim the monies from that account.( clever these banks.)

Do you recall.( Don Johnson--- in TV Show . Miami Vice.)

In 2003 he and three associates were sent by American Business Organisations to withdraw £,6.000,000,000.( six billions.) from the accounts they had in Swiss Banks.(in bonds- securities etc.)

I wonder how the police on the Swiss border knew to stop their particular car that day after they had been to the Swiss banks . They were searched and arrested. Don and his friends made a mistake . They should not have asked for their monies back from the Swiss Banks.( clever these banks.)
