The benefits that flow to Google, Bing, etc. from linking to illegal websites are substantial. So are the benefits gained by internet hosts, especially those providing anonymous or anonymising services for a fee (e.g. Cloudflare) and the internet domain registrars that facilitate the purchase and anonymisation of domains by criminals. In this article, we start the list of domains and those who benefit from providing services to them. Registered users can add their own examples of genuinely illegal websites in the comments.

The cult of paying various US government departments, or "agencies" to say nothing of state prosecutors, to to avoid prosecution using the dubious formula of "without admitting or denying the allegations" has reached a new height as a Canadian banking group has "agreed to remit USD516,105 to settle its potential civil liability."

Note "potential." Are such deals evidence of bribery ("we'll give you money if you leave us alone") or of blackmail ("give us money or we'll cost you a fortune in dealing with a long and complex, and heavily disruptive investigation that we all know will...

Ontario Oil and Gas Limited (sometimes reported as "Ontario Oil and Gas Nigeria Limited"), a Nigerian company, is the vehicle by which Mrs Adaoha UGO-NNADI and Walter WAGBATSOMA committed fuel subsidy fraud in Nigeria. The pair, and their company, have been convicted. Then things started to go weird. One of them is one of 16 people charged with various offences including money laundering in an entirely unrelated case.

It's time for grandparents to remember when they had to recite their "times tables" at infants' school. And guess what, while those around you have lost their brains and reach for calculators for the simplest tasks, you are still able to do multiplication in your head, mostly by just remembering that one number times another equals a third.

Use these tables to help your grand-kids, because all too often modern schooling methods don't.

So far, recounts in the US Presidential election have either been abandoned or resulted in an increase in the majority for Donald Trump. The allegations that Russians somehow infiltrated the voting systems in the USA remain entirely unproven. Today, the allegations are irritating but, ultimately, no different in principle to the tirade of false information on social media. Set that against the express and clear comments of a senior Israeli diplomat saying he would "take down" UK ministers and others in what should have caused a storm but didn't.

Yesterday morning, the Vice Chairman of a Samsung Group company (and generally considered the de facto chairman of the Group) arrived at the office of the prosecutor investigating a political scandal that is swamping President PARK Guen-Hye and her associates. The investigation is rippling out across Korea's rich, famous and powerful and, in the case of Samsung, is looking at how apparently "good" money may turn out to have been "bad." Can FCROs identify which is which?

The continuing saga of South Korean president PARK Geun-Hye is gripping the South East Asian nation while the rest of the world looks on with mild interest and wonders just how many kinds of kimchi there are. To ignore it would be a mistake.

Optimumbank (yes, it is all one word) is based in Plantation, Florida. It's on the watchlist of both state regulator the Florida Office of Financial Regulation and the USA's Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Plan B for failing US banks that protects itself (and taxpayer's money) by an increasingly tight system of national regulation. Its actions include monitoring capital adequacy (about which it often has justifiable hissy fit with the "mom and pop" banks that seem to forget they owe multiple regulatory duties) and, because it is a relatively measurable form of compliance monitoring, failures to comply with money laundering laws. Optimum bank has come to FDIC's notice before the action apparently concluded in November 2016.
