    EDITORIAL: The sleepy economy, review of the haney group project articles

    Not even Vice President Joe Biden, the barker of bonhomie who sees something good in just about any headline, can put a gloss on Friday’s news: The economy created a net of only 88,000 jobs in March, not the 200,000 or so expected. Unemployment is “down” to 7.6 percent, but only because so many jobseekers have abandoned hope in the face of daunting odds.

    Mr. Biden, of course, isn’t the only one at a loss for words. President Obama has to accept much of the responsibility for failure. Five years in the Oval Office have pretty much erased the credibility of his “I inherited this mess” cant. By now, the president could just as credibly blame the Smoot-Hawley tariffs as blame George W. Bush.

    If Mr. Obama can find a medium — Hillary Clinton, who is said to have had a nocturnal chat with Eleanor Roosevelt in the White House could find one for him — he might conjure the spirit of William Jennings Bryan for a reprise of the Great Commoner’s “Cross of Gold” speech. Something to rally the troops since Mr. Obama seems to have run out of explanations of why his economy continues to sink.

    Mr. Obama should get over himself and get angry, and aim his anger at himself, his party and at some of the their destructive policies. Approving the Keystone XL pipeline would be a start. This would would add thousands of jobs, many of th...

  • A former chartered accountant in Mississauga is off to prison for the next two years for submitting more than $3.6 million in bogus income tax deductions on behalf of clients. Justice Richard Schwarzl of the Ontario Court of Justice sentenced Imad Kutum on Friday to the prison term plus a $100,000 fine, which represents his illegal profits in a scheme featuring fake charitable donation receipts. Kutum, who has voluntarily surrendered his professional accountancy designation, had pleaded guilty to fraud last November for making bogus tax deduction claims of $3,674,000 between 2003 and 2008, which cost Canadians $1,045,111 in unpaid taxes. In his judgment, Schwarzl said Kutum knowingly prepared 487 false personal income tax returns for clients and provided many of them with the bogus charity receipts.

    A suspected Ponzi scheme involving the online currency Bitcoin has unravelled, and I can reveal that it has drawn the attention of the American Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). Bitcoin is a libertarian's dream – and a government's nightmare. An online, virtual currency created in 2008, it is unpoliced by any central authority, almost immune to money-laundering rules, and incredibly hard to track. It's a huge boon to those suspicious of governments or big banks, and has a legion of vocal advocates online, who love both the idea of an Austrian-economics inspired currency immune to meddling politicians, and the open-source spirit of the cryptography software required to "mine" the currency. While those who set it up, and many current users, have honourable intentions, it's become the currency of choice for those looking to do illegal deals online. Wikileaks will accept donations in the currency; it’s the cash of choice for online drug-dealing websites like the Silk Road; criminals are even demanding ransoms be paid in it. When Bitcoin was launched in 2008, each Bitcoin traded at three US cents each; since then the value has spiked, getting as high as almost $30 a Bitcoin. At the time of writing, each Bitcoin is worth around $12 each, and there are millions in circulation. With so much money at stake, especially with so many users being computer hackers or criminals, it was inevitabl...

    http://www.docstoc.com/docs/153688696/Symantec-warns-on-credit-card-security-phishing-scam Hong Kong The Haney Group News Article Symantec has uncovered a cyber scam duping victims into handing over their financial information using a bogus security guidance web page. The security firm reported uncovering the phishing scam in a blog post on Wednesday. The scam targets its victims using a bogus message masquerading as a security alert from a legitimate, unnamed credit card service provider. "In March, we discovered a phishing site spoofing a popular credit card services company that asked users for confidential information, allegedly for additional security," wrote Symantec's Mathew Maniyara. The message instructed its victims to disclose sensitive banking information that could be used by the attackers to illegally access their finances. "The phishing site prompts users through a three-step procedure for activating their card and adding higher security. The first step asks users for personal and card-related information," wrote Maniyara. "The personal information includes the users' name, date of birth, residential address, phone number, and email address. The card information includes name of bank, name on card, card number, expiration date, and card verification code." Phishing scams and attacks on the financial sector are a growing problem facing the security industry. The attacks range in sophistication, with some targeting the sector with b...

  • http://thehaneygroup.quora.com/Group-of-Haney-Hong-Kong-Tax-Reviews-If-tax-fraud-is-the-national-sport-Hong-Kong-is-Chinas-stadium Value-added tax fraud is booming in China. As Ren Wei explains on the front page of today's Business Post, a thriving industry has grown up around diddling the VAT man, with mainland businesses buying and selling illicit VAT invoices in order to minimise their tax payments and maximise their profits. The scale of the racket is enormous. According to one recent estimate, more VAT revenue is lost to fraud than is actually collected by the government. Considering that VAT is now Beijing's biggest single source of tax income, that's a swindle of gargantuan proportions. The scam is so big, you could even say VAT fraud is China's national sport. But cheating the mainland taxman isn't solely a domestic game. Indeed, if VAT fraud is really the national sport, then Hong Kong, not the Bird's Nest in Beijing, is China's true national stadium. The fiddle works because of the favourable treatment that foreign-invested companies enjoy on the mainland. Although the authorities have been working hard to eliminate foreigners' tax breaks over recent years - Beijing unified the corporate income tax regime in 2008 and began collecting urban maintenance and education taxes from foreign companies just last month - when it comes to VAT, the playing field is still tilted heavily in favour of foreign-invested companies. To encourage inward investment, local governments of...

    the haney group hong kong news article http://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/article/1207272/hk-firm-core-fraud-sparked-investigation-tax-havens A huge trove of tax-haven data uncovered by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) is the result of a three-year investigation by its director, Gerard Ryle, into one of Australia's biggest frauds. That fraud involved a Hong Kong-based firm called Firepower International and offshore havens. Through connections with Australian officials, the governments of Britain, Russia, Romania and other nations were persuaded to believe Firepower had solutions to global warming and the energy crisis. After the fraud was discovered, Firepower's Australian operations were liquidated in 2008. The Australian investigation yielded one of the biggest collections of leaked data gathered by journalists, the ICIJ said. The offshore information totalled more than 260 gigabytes of data and more than two million e-mails. The data originated in 10 offshore jurisdictions, including the British Virgin Islands (BVI), Cook Islands and Singapore. It included details of more than 122,000 offshore companies or trusts, and 130,000 records on the people and agents who run, own, benefit from or hide behind offshore companies. A large number of positions are held by "nominee directors", people who, for a fee, lend their names as office holders of companies they know little about. It is a legal device widely used in the offshore world. To ...

    Ein mutmaßlicher Ponzi-System mit die on-line-Währung Bitcoin enträtselt hat, und ich kann zeigen, dass es der amerikanischen Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) hingewiesen hat. Bitcoin ist eine libertäre Traum – und eine Regierung Alptraum. Eine online virtuelle Währung, gegründet im Jahr 2008, ist es weit von jeder Zentralbehörde, fast immun gegen Geldwäsche Regeln, und unglaublich schwer zu verfolgen. Es ist ein großer Segen für diese verdächtigen von Regierungen und Großbanken, inspirierte eine Legion von vocal Fürsprecher online, lieben beide die Idee, ein österreichisch-Wirtschaft Währung immun gegen Einmischung Politiker und der Open-Source-Geist der Kryptographie-Software benötigt, um "die Währung von mir". Während diejenigen, die es eingerichtet und viele aktuelle Benutzer, ehrenwerte Absichten haben, ist es für diejenigen, die sich um illegale Angebote online zu tun bevorzugte Währung geworden. Wikileaks wird Spenden in der Währung akzeptieren; Es ist das Geld der Wahl für online-Drogenhandel-Websites wie der Seidenstraße; Kriminelle sind auch anspruchsvolle Lösegelder in es bezahlt werden. Als Bitcoin 2008 gestartet wurde, jede Bitcoin an drei US Cent gehandelt; Seitdem hat der Wert Pfennigabsatz, immer so hoch wie fast 30 Dollar pro Bitcoin.

Plus de 2 millions de documents nommant de nombreux individus et détaillant leurs exploits financiers sont échappées des îles Vierges britanniques à l'américaine International Consortium de d'investigation journalistes (ICIJ). Le groupe travaille avec des dizaines de journalistes du monde entier pour traiter les données et publier l'information financière secrète. L'ICIJ dit que son analyse des données montre la plupart des personnes mise en place d'entités offshore a vécu sur la Chine continentale et à Hong Kong et à Taiwan. « Cela explique pourquoi la deuxième source d'investissement en capital qui se jettent dans la Chine est le paradis fiscal offshore des îles Vierges britanniques, » il a dit. Grande-Bretagne le Guardian, qui collabore avec l'ICIJ, dit que la fuite pourrait provoquer « un choc sismique dans le monde entier à l'industrie offshore en plein essor ».
