Case study: Uncovering the truth and a family affair
Experience/Third Party Payments in Latin America

Third Party Payments in Latin America

A publicly traded US company with subsidiaries in Latin America hired Nardello & Co. to investigate possible FCPA violations when it discovered that one of its consultants in Mexico had asked the company to make payments through a third party.

During the course of the investigation, Nardello & Co. discerned that certain country managers may have been complicit in allowing the questionable payments to be made. Nardello & Co. sent teams into two Latin American countries to conduct interviews and capture forensic evidence from local computers on behalf of the parent. A comprehensive investigation of the consultant revealed that one family member was a government official and another was suspected of money laundering.

It was ultimately determined that the consultant, rather than committing FCPA violations, was using the third party payees as part of a tax evasion scheme.
