The radical change of U.S. foreign policy, to ‘eradicate’ ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ ‘from the face of the Earth’ by aggressively moving on the global jihadi conspiracy, persuades extremists to attack and widen their scope.

A growing number of individuals brought to our attention that they do not own companies, while documents obtained from the massive data leak from Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca, allegedly show, they incorporated a company in known tax-havens e.g. the British Virgin Islands, Seychelles etc..

NEW DELHI: Indians were defrauded of $870 million last year by e-mail scams, or so-called Nigerian “419 scams,” says a global report on the financial crime.
