If you're planning on opening an offshore account, it's best to do it YOURSELF and avoid companies that promise to proxy it for you. Not only could they be shady and cheat you out of your money, but if you are a legitimate business getting "services" from them, being connected to them could land you in legal trouble.
One thing I've noticed is that all of these scamsters love to sell out-dated W.G. Hill books and push privacy tactics that are no longer viable in a post-9/11 world. If you want true privacy' you're better off sticking with HTBI tactics and reading J.J.'s books instead of landing yourself in jail.

Here's an even better suggestion, George. With the exception of Canada (discussed in the e-book "Invisible Money"), do not even think of opening an offshore account, much less going through a third party to do it!
