Yes exactly.

It's easy to open and close bank acocunts. Fisher Capital Management had at least 4 bank account over a 6 month period.

Again, not trying to discourage inaction here, but we need to know our enemy and how they work. Fighting them the conventional (western) way is obviously not working, and they know it.

I don't have the solution, but getting the actual names of these scammers would be a start. Fighting them will depend on where they are (which country).

The secret is the bank and the web url. The police are going after the lower level guys and pressuring to get the big guys. The scammers are now selling high profile stocks, but never purchasing them or deliver them. They bring the money in and switch the customer into illiquid stocks on Frankfurt or Stuttgart or London''s aim or the US electronic bulletin board or Pink Sheets. Not only are the boiler rooms involved in the scam, but the web host and the traders who trade these illiquid stocks for a few weeks to show volume. They can be prosecuted. They will give up who they were trading on behalf of.

What ever happened with Spiriton Media? Was any action taken in Germany?
