LOS ANGELES, March 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In the 2014 fiscal year, irs.gov recorded over $100 million in Federal fraud case conviction losses. This figure accounts for a fraction of the estimated losses for financial fraud, which, according to The Nilson Report, exceeds $11 billion globally. The polygraph has traditionally been used as an investigative tool after a crime has occurred. Investor Mark Saint Juste along with former Federal Agent and polygraph expert Joe Paolella partnered to administer the test in a new way: BEFORE the financial crime occurs. "Repurposing the polygraph as a prevention rather than investigative tool will save individual investors and financial institutions millions of dollars in averted losses and bypass hours of legal proceedings," says Saint Juste. To help secure investors and institutions from future losses, Saint Juste, under his investment company Zhou Limited, will now offer corporate polygraph tests, personal and asset protection and investigative services.
The corporate polygraph will be administered as follows: before an investor gives thousands or millions of dollars to their money manager, trader or investment banker, the financial service professional would be required to take a lie detector test, personally administered by Joe Paolella, one of the worlds leading polygraph specialists. This simple requirement will allow investors to identify dubious investment practices, conflicts of interest and Bernie Madoff-type criminals before they take control of their assets.
The subprime mortgage crisis, which led to the housing bubble bust and global collapse of financial markets in 2008, illustrates the value of a preventive polygraph test. "A $10,000 investment in a two-hour corporate polygraph could have saved investors billions of dollars had we been offering this service a decade ago," Saint Juste states.
Although other firms offer polygraph tests along with personal protection and investigative services, none have the combined leadership of investor Mark Saint Juste and former United States Secret Service agent Joe Paolella. Paolella's pedigree is unrivaled in the arena of personal protection and covert investigative services. Joe has administered over 17,000 polygraph tests, personally protected four United States Presidents and successfully infiltrated organized crime syndicates as an undercover federal agent. Paolella and Saint Juste's working relationship began in 2008 when Saint Juste hired Paolella to investigate a businessperson who attempted to extort money from his investment firm. They later partnered to successfully resolve a five-year-old international child abduction case involving Mark's friend, the wife of a former Los Angeles Laker. The investigation required Saint Juste to fly to Moscow and work with investigators and retired members of the KGB to reunite a mother with her child.
With the aforementioned experiences, Saint Juste decided to make available a range of services that go beyond corporate polygraph and investigations. Zhou Limited will also offer personal and estate protection to celebrities, executives and other high profile individuals. Spearheading the personal protection service is Arlen Smith, a retired Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff. Smith has provided personal security for the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, his children, members of the royal family and other VIPs.
