I have a client that does a lot of banking world-wide and I do recall her talking about some US law changes that will affect the privacy of ALL overseas accounts owned by U.S. citizens/companies. I don't know any more than that, but I do know it's something that was happening under the radar to a degree.

I thought you were only referring to Swiss accounts. As far as I know the Cayman Islands don't share any info with the US. I don't know anything about Africa.

It can't be *that* big of a secret, I heard something about this recently...I can't imagine where besides the news or internet. I certainly don't have enough liquid assets to worry about such things.

The US has laws requiring US citizens/companies to disclosure any offshore bank account details. Thats pretty much been the case for a long time, and offshore banks tend to fail under pressure to disclose details.

Personally I'd setup in Anguilla and (ab)use attorney client privilege to transfer money.

It's coming from the U.S. side, not the foreign side. The problem these foreign banks have is that, for better or worse, they need to do business with US banks. in order to do that, they need to follow certain rules - many of which went into place within weeks of 9/11. Some of this took place long ago - like this topic. My client mentioned it before their Q3 meeting which was in October...
