In 2016, we began investigating a gold-fraud syndicate operating between Tanzania and Kenya, with sales agents propagating the fraud in Europe to private investors and investment funds. We quickly identified the network of individuals involved in the fraud and a sophisticated organization that was able to use legitimate identification numbers for fake certificates. In the course of our investigation, we liaised closely with organizations such as UNMONUSCO, Kenya Revenue Authority, East Africa Community (EAC), and INTERPOL officers in Kenya and Tanzania.
Law Enforcement & Government Liasion
In order to investigate the case we liaised extensively with:
"We have made progress and convinced the Tanzanian government to arrest and prosecute most of the gold scammers we knew and establish stronger clean processes of export documentation processing.
We appreciated the way you handled the issue of the scam organized in Tanzania and Kenya. We were called to testify in a case that is happening in Nairobi - Kenya right now"
- The United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (UN MONUSCO)
