Additionally, the fraud-ring’s scheme to entrap individuals, take over start-ups and use the companies to launder unregistered securities, Specialized developed custom software.

Individual, Corporate Shell, and Unregistered Securities Tracker

The above software generated specific details of individuals, corporations, attorneys and volume of unregistered securities and the money they generated in pump and dump schemes. This information was provided to attorneys and law enforcement and resulted in a Qui Tam lawsuit filing, a RICO civil lawsuit, a SEC lawsuit and criminal charges in Southern District of New York.

In addition to collating evidence, the individuals needed to be tracked down and served. This was a feat within itself. Specialized was up to the challenge.
