Tracking The Global Criminal
Catching today's sophisticated white collar criminal is like peeling an onion, going through layers and layers of business entities, paper trails and false identities, ring by ring, coming ever closer to the core of the crime. By Ed Pankau

Do You Invite People to Lie to You?
"No one wants people to lie to them. Yet, I have encountered numerous parents, teachers and investigators who regularly invite deceptive answers from people they question. I am certain they do not do this intentionally. Rather, these individuals have little understanding of the psychology of deception. This web tip is written for individuals who are not dealing with rapists and murderers everyday. Rather, it is written for those of us who face everyday issues about a person’s credibility." A John Reid article.

You might wonder just how police were able to do that. The FBI says it never reveals its investigative techniques.

Congress Tackles Identity Theft 
Responding to outrage from consumers whose personal information has been stolen, Congress is primed to pass new laws to try to prevent break-ins and to require businesses to confess to customers when private data is taken. The government's new interest in requiring disclosures reverses years of efforts by the FBI to shield corporations that have been victims of hackers from bad publicity by keeping such crimes out of headlines.-A WiredNews story.
