Now The FBI Has A Corporate Anti-Fraud Program That Scans Emails For 3,000 Suspicious Phrases
January 7, 2013
Given how notorious Wall Streeters are for writing embarrassing e-mails that are later used against them in court (see: Libor scandal), they should really take note of this news.
The FBI has developed new software that scans e-mails for buzz words and phrases that indicate the sender (and receiver) or said mail are up to no good, the FT reports. There are over 3,000 words and phrases that would raise a red flag in the program.
Accounting firm Ernst and Young found out about this program after looking through evidence from corporate investigations in conjunction with the FBI.
From the FT:
The language, which is a mix of accounting phrases, personal motivations and attempts to conceal, are very revealing, said Rashmi Joshi, Ernst & Youngs director of fraud investigation and disputes services.
He said that the monitoring of email traffic played almost no role in the compliance efforts of companies looking for possible problems. While most organisations only focus on the numbers when investigating discrepancies, what we are seeing are ways of analyzing words emails, SMS or instant messaging to identify and isolate wrongdoing.
Linguistic analysis software, which initially protects employee anonymity, can flag uncharacteristic changes in tone and language in electronic conversations and can also be tailored for particular types of employees, especially traders.
So phrases like, "nobody will find out," "call my mobile"," and "don't leave a trail" could now get you noticed.
You've been warned.

Now there's a conspiracy waiting to hatch.
Who Are the Brain Police??
meanwhile fedgov passes out EBT cards for use in girlie joints and that’s. OK.
” So phrases like, “nobody will find out,” “call my mobile”,” and “don’t leave a trail” could now get you noticed.”
Also, “the right of the people”, as well as anything written by Thomas Jefferson.
The Yutes of America will always be ten steps ahead of them in inventing new texting codes IMHO, LOL.
So I just sent an email to my sisters, put it on FB and Twitter..........if you don’t hear from me again, you will know why. /s/s/
We may need those skills for the upcoming resistance.
Since “Don’t leave a trail” could mean someone doesn’t want anyone to know a democrat slug has paid them a visit, they might be on to something here.
That’s precisely why I have sold all my firearms and ammunition at our garage sale.
“that’s not the droid you’re looking for”
I’d like to get a list of all 3,000 Suspicious Phrases
to include in each and every e-mail I ever send.
Are we back to the good ol’ days of “echelon bait”?
Thats precisely why I have sold all my firearms and ammunition at our garage sale.
I thought you went out boating and they all fell over the edge of you boat... such a tragic loss....

Just add it to the “signature” feature of your favorite e-mail client!
I was going to post something but I don’t want to leave a trail. Hopefully nobody will find out what I’m talking about but if you want to know you’ll have to call my cell.

I remember those days and loved the 'bait.' thread.
The 'bait' thread was where everyone said the 'trigger words' as many times as possible.
Not to worry.
Every email and phone call made in the good ol' USA is now recorded and stored.
I'm thinking the same is probably occurring daily from space with your property too.(Probably more than one picture a day is put into storage)
Echelon, the original big brother gub mint watch over all that breaths.
Not too many know of it though?
Until recently I worked with the Law Enforcement Relations department at one of the large cell phone companies. They not only save every text message, as well as the originating and receiving phone numbers and times of every message and phone call, but even your location. Your phone is constantly pinging towers to ensure it has a connection to receive calls, etc. Every one of those pings is saved. Each ping includes the time and which tower was pinged. It means they know where your phone is and where it was in the past going back seven years. It’s why, if you are going to commit a crime, you want to use your Trakfone, etc.
BTW, they don’t record the content of phone conversations.
At least, not yet.
Oh, and about pinging towers: If you are in an area with good coverage, they can triangulate and pinpoint your location within a few feet WITHOUT GPS. It was done with my phone before my very eyes. Pretty amazing.
It means that if they think you are the one that “killed the little girl” and you kept your cell phone on you, once they subpoena this information, they can pinpoint the place in the woods you lingered to dig the shallow grave.
I’m sharing this information because I strongly believe people have a right to know how their privacy is impacted by carrying a cell phone around with them.
