The House of a Thousand Shell Companies

2014-01-23-ScreenShot20140123at11.04.49AM-thumb

This unassuming house in Cheyenne, Wyoming might look like any other neighborhood home, but behind its brick walls and well-manicured lawn sit the “corporate suites” of over 2,000 shell companies.

Reporters are calling this house “the Cayman Islands on the Great Plains”. Inside sits a single woman who acts as operator for countless corporate “suites”, each with their own mailbox out of hundreds that line the walls.

Their website even boats that their corporations are “a legal person created by state statute that can be used as a fall guy, a servant, a good friend or a decoy. A person you control… yet cannot be held accountable for its actions.”

And some people still wonder where corporate misbehavior comes from.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
