Amicus International Consulting is a consulting firm based in Vancouver, Canada. The firm provides clients with anonymity via "new legal identities."[1][2] According to Benzinga, Amicus has been in the industry working with experienced international lawyers all over the world for over 37 years.[3][4]

Overview

Founded in 1997, Amicus International Consulting deals with cases such as facilitating legal identity changes, second citizenships, anonymous traveling and living, extradition for clients and international prisoner treaty transfers.[5][6][7][8]

On February 23, 2017, a report published by journalist Ian Young in the South China Morning Post alleged that in 2011, Amicus assisted two Chinese fraudsters who were involved in a US$485 million theft from the Bank of China. The firm helped the wives of the fraudsters in obtaining Spanish citizenship while they were imprisoned in the United States.[9] In May 2017, the story was further covered when Young was interviewed on the Jon McComb show on CKNW about Amicus.[10]

Amicus was also featured in the podcast series CBC Island Crime Podcast, Season 2 Episode 2,(February 2021) "The Talking Boards".[11] In September 2023, Amicus representatives were interviewed on the Dave Nemo show on Sirius XM about the "Rise of Synthetic Identity Theft".[12]
