Description

'Rinsed is a triumph. If you want to understand how the chaotic world around us really works, read this book!’
MILES JOHNSON, AUTHOR OF CHASING SHADOWS

'A riveting look at not only the nuts and bolds of cons and crimes but the techniques detectives use to stalk cyber criminals'
FINANCIAL TIMES

For as long as people have been stealing money, there has been an industry ready to wash it. But what happened when our economy went digital? How does the global underworld wash its dirty money in the Internet age?

Rinsed reveals how organized crooks have joined forces with the world’s most sophisticated cybercriminals. The result: a vast virtual money-laundering machine too intelligent for most authorities to crack. Through a series of jaw-dropping cases and interviews with insiders at all levels of the system, Geoff White shows how thieves are uniting to successfully get away with the most atrocious crimes on an unprecedented scale.

The book follows money from the outrageous luxury of Dubai hotels to sleepy backwaters of coastal Ireland, from the backstreets of Nigeria to the secretive zones of North Korea, to investigate this new cyber supercartel. Through first-hand accounts from the victims of their devastating crimes, White uncovers the extraordinary true story of hi-tech laundering – and exposes its terrible human cost.

'Rinsed is as twisty, colourful and terrifyingly eye-opening as the people White investigates. You’ll never look at wealth, technology and crime in the same way’
CARA MCGOOGAN, AUTHOR OF THE POISON LINE

'A gripping look at the battle between cops and criminals on the new frontier of financial crime'
BRADLEY HOPE, CO-AUTHOR OF BILLION DOLLAR WHALE
