Do you Believe in yourself ?

Saturday morning cartoons make me feel alive.I prepared pancakes, sausages and eggs for breakfast and I watched cartoons from the 90s. 

In the evening time,I watched an episode of Johnny Bravo,where a series of unfortunate things happened to him as he lusted after yet another woman. It could have been a heat flash,but Dionne Warwick appeared in a vision to him. She warned Johnny that his failure to believe in himself and his ability to successfully pursue the woman was the cause of his perceived bad luck.

It’s amazing where you can find inspiration. In a cartoon ,a movie,a child . Just think of it as the universe’s way of speaking to you.

Believe in yourself.Believe in your dreams.Believe in your ability to execute the project. Never give up.Trust the process.

Do not let your own doubt cause you to experience bad luck.Just believe.

Top 10 ways to Launder Drug Money through a Supermarket : Free Anti Money Laundering Training in Trinidad!! Must watch

“It was my first job,packing the groceries in bags and boxes at the supermarket. My supervisor handed me a brown paper bag and instructed me to take it upstairs accompanied by the security guard on duty at the grocery. I peeked inside the brown bag and there were coils of $100 notes in TTD cuurency. This was not the cash from the cash registers because there are set times where all the cashiers would clear their drawers. I delivered the bag upstairs as instructed and returned behind cash register #5 where I was placed for the page.” These were the words of my client. I told him that tomorrow he would appear before the Magistrate and would be asked if he pleaded guilty or not guilty to the charges.

See my New Youtube video!!

Is your local supermarket a front for a money laundering operation ? It is possible. Supermarkets are cash intensive businesses and many of them in Trinidad, do not accept Linx. There are other supermarkets that will even change your government issued disability checks as long as you purchase a few items.

Below are the Top 10 Ways to Launder Dirty Money using a Supermarket:

1.Use dirty cash as float or change to be used by cashiers to give to customers;

2.Use cash gained from illegal activities to pay suppliers such as fresh fruits and vegetables vendors,coconut water suppliers. Some suppliers accept cash only or even extend 7 days or 30 days credit to the supermarket;

3.Employees of the supermarket can be paid in cash weekly with the proceeds of crime. Most staff of a supermarket receive cash payments in brown a envelope;

4.Bags of dirty cash can be deposited into the supermarket’s business bank account as cash from sales;

5.Rent for the premises of the supermarket can be paid with dirty money;

6.Utilities such as electricity, internet and water can be paid with money obtained from illegal activities;

7.Accept checks from recipients of disability checks issued by the Government and pay them with cash gained from criminal activities;

8.Dirty Cash in small denominations ($10 bills, $20 bills) can be given to the cashier and she will exchange it with $100 bills, or just change the notes;

9. The grocery can sell items wholesale such as cigarettes and alcohol to a bar that is also owned by the proprietor of the supermarket ,dirty cash will be used for this purchase;

10.Cash can be accepted and fake invoices generated and the grocery issues a checks to the criminal.

What is Credit Card Skimming? Anti-Money Laundering Consultant Trinidad

Credit card skimming is a type of credit card theft where a device is used to steal sensitive information when the card is used in a legitimate transaction. The device is called a skimmer and it reads the customers personal information that was stored on the magnetic strip of the card.

In Trinidad in 2019 persons were charged and convicted with being in possession of fraudulent ATM cards and large sums of cash knowing that the money was the proceeds of fraud and for the purpose of money laundering.

These defendants were non nationals who came to Trinidad armed with 182 fradualent ATM cards. They visited different ATMS and were withdrawing sums of money. They arised the suspicion of security personnel of financial institutions.

Law enforcement became involved and the defendants were detained and brought before the courts.

It seems that there is a large international network of cyber criminals who steal credit card information. At our ports of entry in Trinidad, officials are oftentimes unable to identify the skimming devices as they resemble smart phone accessories.

Persons may be making purchases at your company with fradulent credit cads! Want to know how to protect yourself?

Do Sole Traders file Annual returns in Trinidad? Trinidad Online Lawyer

Its a No from me!!

Sole Traders do not need to file annual returns because there are no directors or officers of a limited liability company either for profit or not for profit.

The Sole Trader is the sole person trading in the business. It is really the individual who is trading as a business name.

Do Non Profit Organisations (NPOs) file Annual Returns?

Yes or no? Remember that a Non Profit Organization is really a company that is not operating for a profit. That is to say, the sole purpose of the charity is for some noble or social cause. Any profits are reinvested into the Non Profit Organization. Compared to a “for profit company” where profits are distributed among the directors of the company.

The answer is YES!! A Non Profit Organization must file Annual Returns every year with the Companies Registrar.

What is an annual return?

An Annual Return is critical to a company since this document presents a correct, updated reflection of the company’s state of affairs. This documents presents an up to date snapshot of all directors and officers of the company, share capital as well as company debts. Once this document is filed at the Companies Registry, this information will be registered with the Registrar. When conducting company business, banks and other stakeholders will request the most recent Annual Returns. From this document all present company officers and company debts can be discerned.

When should a Company file an Annual Return??

The law states that a company should file an Annual Return no later than 30 days after each anniversary date of its continuance, incorporation or amalgamation at the Companies Registrar .

What happens if a company fails or refuses to file an Annual Return?

Where a Company fails or refuses to file a document with the Registrar within the time specified in the Act, the Registrar shall be entitled to collect from that Company a penalty of three hundred dollars ($300.00) for every month or part thereof.

The Companies Act of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago requires companies to file an Annual Return every year even if the company has not been trading. In accordance with Section 194 (1) of the Companies Act of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, each company must file an Annual Return no later than thirty (30) days after each anniversary date of incorporation in the applicable form. At any point, the officers of the company can change directors, corporate secretaries, issue shares or acquire loans and these changes must be captured in the Registrar’s records of the company.

DIGITAL Slavery: Life in a Cell….phone

I lament the complete lack of regard for the proverbial “moment” by my generation and I. We spend the vast majority of our day scrolling through pointless news feeds and reading irrelevant updates. These things do not in anyway enrich the value of our lives or assist in our personal development. I am oftentimes prompted to update the software on my phone and it makes me wonder if I am upgrading myself often. Perish the thought that I was doing the same thing last year around this time. That will be contrary to my progressive nature.

Life in a cell…phone is an unpaid , full time job. There are numerous requests awaiting my acceptance. Just thinking of all the advertisements that pop up in my feed raises my blood pressure. Various updates about other interactions that are of absolutely no value to me. There are new stories waiting to be seen. New displays of egos waiting to be inflated. Recycled lack of good self-esteem selfies resurfacing. Unattractive faces with toned bodies waiting for a “like” or “comment”. If I oblige, the notifications will be cleared, if I accept the requests and appease you…I receive absolutely no monetary reward for doing this.

Life in a cell…phone takes away from enjoying the moment. When last have you had a face to face conversation, while leaving your prison warden (cell…phone) in your pockets? Have you noticed that your “friend” got a new haircut? Have you engaged in a  conversation with your friends without mentioning a viral video? I know many couples who would not have a relationship if they had no Wifi connection or electricity. We honestly believe that  exchanging free text  messages on the available instant messaging applications constitutes communication. We think that we can know someone after sending and receiving a few free messages. At least, I hope that I am worth more than a free text message.

Life in a cell…phone blocks us from achieving personal excellence. Imagine how you can become more valuable at your organization by taking some new courses. There are different seminars and workshops at your disposal. Knowledge is power, and this power that is being conferred is free. In this Information Age, what do we really know? Our minds remain chained to the distractions that are being fed to us by our oppressors. And we consume these distractions with glee and wonder why we can’t improve our standards of living. The good news is , that you may receive a pardon or be due for parole if you  remember to live in the moment and not in your cell…phone.
