To understand fraud, it is essential that you understand the mind of its perpetrators. Neal Levin is a worldwide authority in the pursuit of fraud, having hunted down swindlers from Texas to Dubai. He is often compared to Mr. Wolf from Pulp Fiction, because of his ability to clean up even the worst messes. But whatever the situation, he knows that fraudsters’ behaviors, and the forces that underlie them, are shockingly consistent, and that can be the source of their undoing.
In this powerful introduction to a nefarious world, Neal explains that fraudsters are driven by a basic instinct to conquer. They are not motivated by money: it’s all about showing that they are smarter than the next guy – and it is usually a guy! By sharing his knowledge of a fraudster’s all-too-frequent flaws, Neal explains how corporations, banks, insurers, attorneys, indeed anyone with a need to prevent losses and recover assets from fraud, can outplay cheats and tricksters. Neal explains some of the specific steps they can take to prevent fraud occurring, and how finding the key points of leverage can force the reclamation of assets once fraud has taken place.

His practice is international in scope and he has appeared in dozens of different tribunals over the course of his 23 years in the business.
Mr. Levin and his team also spend considerable time on the study of fraudsters as a means of leveraging their success.
