Gery Shalon, Joshua Aaron, and Ziv Orenstein, the defendants, and their co-conspirators operated their criminal schemes, and laundered their vast criminal proceeds, through at least 75 shell companies and bank and brokerage accounts around the world.  The defendants controlled these companies and accounts using aliases, and by fraudulently using approximately 200 purported identification documents, including over 30 false passports that purported to be issued by the United States and at least 16 other countries.”

Talk about going the extra mile to try and hide your identity.

I doubt there is any way to 'hide' as long as you are 'in' the system meaning you can transfer from one company to another, from one account to another but all of that leaves a trail. Only way to get out of the system is to actually get out i.e. cash out somewhere. Problem is it's a bit difficult to carry that $100m with you wherever you go.
