Jeff Makovicka: Banks Could Use FBI Program to Combat International Wire Fraud

Publications - Article | June 28, 2017


Kutak Rock attorney Jeff Makovicka authored the article “A (Short) Time to Kill: FBI's Financial Fraud Kill Chain Program” for the May/June 2017 issue of Nebraska Banker.

In the article Makovicka explains that wire fraud schemes are increasing and banks should be aware of the FBI's "Financial Fraud Kill Chain" (FFKC) which seeks to recover funds and shut down the perpetrators. The FFKC utilizes FinCEN's relationship with the Egmont group plus law enforcement in countries around the world to stop criminals from withdrawing funds from illegal foreign accounts.

The article appears as the Counselor's Corner feature in Nebraska Banker and can be read in its entirety here.
