In case you haven’t noticed, the design of Mr. Watchlist has changed. That caricature of me on the left sidebar? Drawn by my daughter Emily, who’s about to be a senior at Pennsylvania College of Art and Designhere’s her website.

And you should also check out the animation she did for me that now replaces that photo on the About page. Nice, huh?

Personally, I like it – these reflect my personality. What do you think?

And, of course, Emily is open for commissioned work…

Was Mr. Watchlist o/’?

I just spent the last 2 weeks in Asia – China, South Korea and India. That’s why I am running behind – lots of time on planes and packing and unpacking luggage (and steaming dress clothes wrinkled in transit).

So, please be patient – I will catch up soon.

And, for those of you not familiar… the post title is a reference to the kid’s show “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego” (and computer game, too).

Mr. Watchlist’s professional persona will be at the Dow Jones booth at the ACAMS spring conference (the official title would give me carpal tunnel if I typed it all) this Monday through Wednesday. As usual, it’s being held at the Diplomat resort hotel (it’s a Hilton – yay!) in Hollywood, Florida. Come say hi and we can chat about sanctions till the cows come home (although I’m not sure there are any cows down by Fort Lauderdale).

Hi, folks – 


Mr. Watchlist had some spare time (and a lot of Red Bull), so he has updated every single resource page on the site. While it may be time to look for new upcoming events again, all the regulatory links now work and are up to date. Anything I couldn’t fix, I removed. And I expanded what I could – I’ve added more FinCEN advisories; made the list of OFAC advisories, FAQ links, guidance documents and press charts as complete as I know of; and even added links to all the flavors of UN Narrative Summaries pages. Oh, and added all the vendors from the recent ACAMS Las Vegas conference.

If there is anything you’d like me to add, don’t hesitate to holler. Other than the events, next step is probably to start adding previous years of OFAC enforcement actions…can never have to many of those.


Mr. Watchlist

Mr & Mrs Watchlist are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary by getting away from it all for about 2 weeks. I’ll start catching up after July 4th – while I have some less-critical updates scheduled to post while I’m away, there won’t be timely updates until I get back.

But imagine all the stuff you get to read when I do…

We promise to only do this every few years…


Mr. & Mrs. Watchlist
