MIL (Mondrago Investigations Limited) was founded by Richard Cumming in 2006 following his retirement from the City of London Police Fraud Squad as a Detective Inspector, having spent the previous 13-years working on complex fraud and money laundering cases, including a period of secondment to a sensitive section in the Foreign Office targeting international organised crime.
Richard passed the advanced UK National Police Training Course on investigation of money laundering/asset tracing and was engaged in the most serious money laundering and fraud investigations involving international and organised crime, for example, leading an investigation on the £100 million collapse of a City of London merchant bank which resulted in the Chairman receiving a term of imprisonment of 7 years. He also led investigations and developed intelligence involving the extent to which so called "Russian Organised Crime" had penetrated the UK.
Richard was also engaged in the delivery of anti money-laundering training in the UK and abroad. He was security vetted to the highest level and frequently called on to investigate particularly sensitive cases outside the conventional Fraud Squad remit. For example, the compromise of computer systems involved with UK National Security. He received several commendations from Chief Officers of the City of London Police.
Since his retirement, he continued this investigative role in the private sector, forming MIL, which
has conducted investigations, including asset tracing and surveillance, on behalf of several major corporations as well as an extensive private clientele. His work in the private sector has included travel to the USA, Canada and several European countries to conduct enquiries and led to the development of contacts in numerous other parts of the world. MIL has particularly close connections with Spain, hence the use of some Spanish in the following pages.
Richard is a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Investigators.
