There are dozens of companies providing what they call the ultimate privacy protection. Sounds pretty cool, no? They do this by setting you up in an offshore corporation and bank account, the ultimate protection. Unfortunately, there is a flaw in the process.
The issue is many offshore companies draw you into their website and offer their services. The problem is if you visited the website from a computer or IP address associated with your identity you created a massive footprint. A skip tracer hunting your assets could easily obtain your IP address and locate which countries you searched, for the purposes of hiding or protecting your money.
Maybe the offshore process needs to go a bit deeper into the privacy aspect. Perhaps there should be protocols of how one can open an offshore corporation or bank account and do so without leaving a digital footprint.
