The fight between good and evil always existed. This fight has now moved to the world of money – black money. The horrific terrors are funded

through money sources never imagined before and are an industry by itself.

According to a report issued by Transparency International and Risk Advisory, the global economy loses $3.2trillion USD each year due to corruption, bribery, theft and money laundering.

Money is the reason behind 35,000 elephants being killed each year, one million people are subjected to human trafficking and an average of 25% of humanitarian aid is stolen by warlords. All these examples are real definitions of what is known as black money.

Thomas Creal, an expert in tracing black money and attacking all points along the illicit chain of commerce, created a video game just like Candy Crush, that fights back. Creal’s favorite saying is, “If you bankrupt the enemy, you will win the war.”

Video games are an integral part of the lives of adults and children. About 700million people play video games and about 67% of Americans play video games on at least one type of device according to a new study released by Electronic Entertainment Design and Research. Let's ask ourselves what would be the effect if those 67% played a game that could contribute to the preservation and stability of humanity.

Eva Black Money Ops, from www.blackmoneygames.com and Creal’s weapon of choice is a game that can educate and entertain us at the same time. People are innovating faster than ever. It shouldn’t be enough anymore to play video games just for an entertainment while terrible things continue to reap havoc in all corners of the world. Today innovations should be used in the battle of good versus evil.

Eddy Pham, a top game promoter says “Eva Black Money game is a modern day Sherlock Holmes. The game is based on real facts, bad actors and techniques that were used, giving special credibility to this game. By tracking black money flows and playing all levels, you help defeat the bad guys.”

Creal claims part of his success is due to the game, “By exposing the facts, bad actors and the money movers involved, we put the power back in the hands of the people – literally in their hands. And as history dictates, the people still hold the power.” He continues, “We are building levels in the game from RICO cases, country uprisings, cases on war crimes, banks that helped move the black money and of course, the warlords too.”

The age of disruption is upon us in more ways than we know. One key part of this video game is to unite us against common enemy. But we also learn how to defeat the bad guys. One man once said: “My birthplace is Earth, my race is Human, my politics is Freedom, my religion is Love.”

The State of Online Gaming 2018 market research reports that gamers play casual single-player games such as Candy Crush or Angry Birds more often than other types of games. This information proves that creating Eva Black Money was a real hit.

Eva Black Money is free to download and play, and it also offers in-App purchase. Some of the gamers who tested playing Eva said that it’s a game with surprising fast performance. “The game loads quickly and performance is speedy, and that is very important when playing a game” said one of the professional gamers. He continues “It’s great, because it’s easy to play, it can be played by our mums and dads, aunts and uncles, even grandparents.”

Eva Black Money is becoming very popular all over the world. Nowadays gaming is a form of entertainment and it’s a sociable activity, which is confirmed by Nenad Rakovic, a professional hockey player. He says “As a professional athlete my whole my life I was playing sports video games, then I found out about black money games. It is really great, it's so exciting. I shared it with my friends so all of us make a break from FIFA 2019 and we are competing in chasing the criminals all over the world.”

By playing puzzle games such as Eva Black Money, we can improve our attention and concentration, and at the same time we can work on improving our decision making speed and also our ability to make the best possible decision. The game has the rewarding system, and that leads players to a constant high motivational level.

Jane Mcgonigal says “Gamers always believe that an epic win is possible, and that it is always worth trying.”

We should follow this saying and also believe in an epic win against black money flows and everything bad it brings to all of us.

MONROVIA, Liberia — How much money did Charles G. Taylor, the deposed president of Liberia, siphon out of his destitute, war-shattered country, and where is it?

For almost seven years, since an international warrant was issued for his arrest, the search has stretched from the mangrove swamps and diamond fields of West Africa to Swiss banks and shell corporations — a state-of-the-art version of the sweeping asset hunts that have accompanied the fall of autocrats since the shah of Iran’s demise in the 1970s.

Investigators have crawled in the dirt under porches and buildings in this impoverished capital to seek out financial records. They have confronted bankers and government officials on four continents. They have cross-referenced mazes of documents charting the transfer of millions of dollars into and out of dozens of accounts.

But they have come up dry for any money in Mr. Taylor’s name. In fact, four years ago, Mr. Taylor was classified as “partially indigent” by the Special Court for Sierra Leone at The Hague, where he is charged with instigating murder, mutilation, rape and sexual slavery during intertwined wars in Liberia and Sierra Leone that claimed more than 250,000 victims from 1989 to 2003.

That has left donor nations — the United States being the largest — to cover his monthly $100,000 legal bill and the broader costs of his $20 million trial.


America’s war in Afghanistan, which is now in its fifteenth year, presents a mystery: how could so much money, power, and good will have achieved so little? Congress has appropriated almost eight hundred billion dollars for military operations in Afghanistan; a hundred and thirteen billion has gone to reconstruction, more than was spent on the Marshall Plan, in postwar Europe.

The sleuth behind the legal headaches of Czech billionaire Radovan Vitek, targeted in April in a billion dollar lawsuit filed as a racketeering claim is named Tom Creal and, of all things, besides pursuing his international work fighting crime by conventional means, he works his profession making video games. Creal is a seasoned forensic accounting warrior against notorious figures like Charles Taylor, the former president of Liberia and convicted war criminal, to the warlords in Afghanistan dealing in the opium trade.

Seriously, when attacking black money we need both old school and new school techniques, Thomas Creal. 
The news of more billion dollar illicit activities, mostly labeled as money laundering or even the cryptocurrency wave of billion dollar coins, always gives me pause as to what is really going on in the movement of money around our world. One organization who I have enjoyed working with when possible, Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence, published that Banks and other Financial Institutions have been fined about $321Billion USD by regulators since 2008.
