You forgot to answer the question. You said....
I heard no complaint from the OP. Moreover, I outlined an approach for
solving his question.
"Dropping a dime" is not a legal matter, civil or criminal. It
We're not talking about dropping anything, we're talking about tax
evasion on a large scale according to the OP's own description.
You're confused. The OP represented he had knowledge of tax evasion by a
client who had subsequently treated him badly. He was considering
informing the IRS (i.e., "dropping a dime"). (The OP did not indicate if
this would include providing corroborative evidence.) It would then be
up to the IRS to follow up or not, as it chose, and, if the OP kept his
identity secret, his involvement would have ceased with his dropping of
Yes. Since he is in the US, and you seem to think there exists some
jurisdiction and/or service that will protect him from this threat,
it would be very nice if you'd share.
You have a short memory, but, since I'm a kind and indulgent soul I will
refresh it by repeating the information I gave in a previous post:
"dropping a dime" is best done using the remailer network. Note that if
the OP does not grossly bungle this process it will render it *utterly
impossible* to out him, let alone compel him to testify. (This excludes
the possibility, of course, that other unrelated avenues lead to him.)
Personally, after a couple years of looking up trade and legal
agreements, watching the news, and just generally trying to stay on
top of the "off shore" situation, I don't believe that place or
service exists except in the memories of old school types and the
imaginations of a few wishful thinkers.
Your failure is a greater testimony to deficiencies in your ability or
assiduity rather than the lack of available resources. So I will resist
your invitation to cast my pearls before swine. USian provincialism
often blinds the citizens of that unhappy land to the myriad
possibilities that exist worldwide. These each have their own merits and
demerits, of course, and evaluating them in terms of one's particular
needs is a task that cannot be shirked without exposing oneself to
unnecessary risks. But it is a task that can well reward those who
undertake it. In short, it's a big broad world out there.
In that respect, let me note that there has never been a breach of my
security - in physical security, in data storage, in communication, in
financial matters, in identity management, or any other aspect. I am
well satisfied with, and confident in, the measures I have taken, which
include geographic and jurisdictional dispersion.
