Always determine the use to which your client intends to put the funding you are disbursing to him. Two men, from upstate New York, seeking financial backers to build a mobile, remotely operated, truck-borne radiation emitting device, and targeting Muslims and other groups, were arrested by the FBI. Charged with Conspiracy to Provide Material Support to Terrorism (Weapon of Mass Destruction)*. The anticipated effect was covert targeting, and delayed fatalities suffered by those targeted.
Law enforcement was able to prevent the construction of the weapon, due to the placement of cooperating individuals inside the criminal conspiracy, after parties who were solicited for funding notified the authorities.
Both defendants have been committed to pretrial detention. They were obviously considered to be threats to the community by the Court. The next time a client states that the purpose of a loan is Working Capital, kindly enquire further.
