I am a Higher Officer working in HMRC Criminal Finance Intelligence since 2009. I manage and develop cases investigating offences ranging from VAT fraud to cigarette smuggling and the associated money laundering activity.
I am currently heavily involved in HMRC Project Aten looking at the utilisation of what HMRC refer to as Alternative Banking Platforms (ABP). These are on-line unregulated banking systems used by criminals to facilitate fraud. I engage with multiple partners to identify investigation opportunities and to consider effective techniques to cause widespread disruption.
