Eva Moore contacted us to help draw awareness to a series of disclosures related to government and banking finance of terrorist actions around the world.
Brad Birkenfeld is an American who was working as a Swiss Banker for UBS. When he discovered the United States of America, Inc was using accounts to launder money for drug and terrorist operations. Brad came back to the USA to present his findings to Congress and Sub-Committees, but instead was put in jail. Julien Assange leaked cables that showed Brad was set up. At the same time Scott Bennett was also jailed in the same prison for trying to disclose similar findings about the Swiss.
They met inside the prison and so these two Whistleblowers, one from the Swiss Banks and the other from the US, got together to compare notes. As it stands, they have been trying to get this information released to the public.
On May, 5th 2015 Brad will be detailing the story from the Swiss side at Davids conference. Scott Bennett is requesting the help of people like you, to ask for David to let Scott speak at this conference along side Brad, to cover the American side of the financing.
The financing behind the worlds terrorists organizations are going to be discussed by Scott and Brad; Al Queida, ISIS, etc. Take a moment to call David Marchant +1 (305) 542-0418 or email [email protected] and request that Scott story be told this Tuesday May 5th, 2015 in Miami, FL. Your voice is needed!
Scott relayed this message to us, with his wording for an email:

Dear David Marchant,
I thank you for setting up this event to hear the truth of what has really been going on behind the scenes of our governments and their financing of terrorism. The people need to hear this story as detailed by SCOTT BENNETT as well. I implore you to allow SCOTT BENNETT to speak at the OFFSHORE ALERT CONFERENCE on May 5th, 2015! We need to hear all sides of this far reaching swiss bank – terrorist finance story! Allow him to speak.
Thank you for your understanding!
The request from Whistleblower Scott Bennett:
This is taken from a NBC article about Brad:
Why did the US pay this former Swiss banker $104M?
Bradley Birkenfeld was released from federal prison in August 2012 after serving 2½ years for his role as a Swiss banker hiding millions of dollars for wealthy American clients….
But then his lawyer walked into the room, carrying a check from the U.S. Treasury to Birkenfeld for $104 million—minus taxes. On the face was a picture of the Statue of Liberty.
It was Birkenfeld’s cut as a whistleblower of the massive settlement his former employer—the Swiss bank UBS—had paid to the United States government in a settlement for helping Americans dodge taxes. As Birkenfeld signed the check, he was transformed from convicted felon to government-made multimillionaire….
But Birkenfeld, 50, a big man with a brash style and a temper, isn’t done with the U.S. Department of Justice. He’s on a quest, he said, to force the government to explain why it was so aggressive in prosecuting him, but let nearly everyone else involved in the scam get off with light penalties or none at all.
Now Birkenfeld is telling his story exclusively to CNBC. Wealthy, out of prison and soon to be removed from federal probation, he says he’s now free to explain how he came to be the man who ended the tradition of bank secrecy and got rich in the process.
The reverberations from Birkenfeld’s disclosures have been titanic, playing out on a global stage. The United States in 2009 forced UBS to pay a $780 million penalty and admit it conspired to defraud the United States by impeding the IRS from obtaining information on American taxpayers hiding money in Switzerland. In 2014, banking giant Credit Suisse pleaded guilty and said it would pay $2.6 billion in penalties. American investigators soon followed the trail of hidden money to banks in Israel, India and around the world.

UBS WHISTLEBLOWER BRAD BIRKENFELD TO SPEAK AT OFFSHOREALERT CONFERENCE
Whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld – who received a $104 million award for blowing the whistle on the tax evasion practices of Swiss bank UBS – will speak at The OffshoreAlert Conference in Miami Beach.
Birkenfeld will participate in what is essentially a ‘super panel’ of four of the most significant figures in the history of offshore banking whistleblowing and leaks.
The panel for a session entitled ‘Inside the UBS & HSBC Leaks’ will comprise:
Bradley Birkenfeld: UBS Whistleblower;
Hervé Falciani: HSBC Whistleblower;
Dean Zerbe: Counsel responsible for the modern IRS whistleblower law who secured a $104 million whistleblower award in 2012 for his client Birkenfeld – the largest such award in history;
Gerard Ryle: Director of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and responsible for receiving, organizing and publishing leaks of tens of thousands offshore account records that implicated many prominent international figures in tax evasion.
“This is the most important and exciting panel that we’ve ever assembled for one of our conferences,” said David Marchant, OffshoreAlert’s publisher. “Given their unique experiences and significant contributions to global whistleblowing, I can’t wait to hear what they have to say.”
The session will take you inside the UBS and HSBC leaks and discuss issues material to whistleblowing, including the treatment of whistleblowers by law enforcement and tax collection agencies, how the system can be improved, the extent of global tax evasion, and the involvement of the world’s major banks.
The 13th Annual OffshoreAlert Conference North America will take place at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach on May 3-5, 2015. The theme is ‘financial intelligence and investigations’.
