Trading gold over debit cards, the internet  and mobile –phones (virtual currency, e-gold) is a fast growing trend especially among Muslims. These services provide mobility and anonymity. There  is hardly a better vehicle available to terrorists for transferring or receiving money.

Detectives investigating the stabbing death of a woman in a Century City high-rise parking garage earlier this week are looking for possible links to an ongoing FBI fraud inquiry of the international gold trading company that she and her estranged husband owned, law enforcement officials said.

The FBI examination of Goldfinger Coin & Bullion Sales and an associated Internet firm, e-Bullion, was underway before the killing, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the murder investigation was ongoing. On Monday evening, a man with a knife killed 45-year-old Camarillo resident Pamela Fayed in the garage of the high-rise where she had been visiting a lawyer, investigators said.

The Los Angeles Police Department “is going to be working with the FBI” on the murder case, said Lt. Natalie Williams, who declined to discuss the investigation in any detail and added that it was too early to have developed a theory of the case. “Our detectives are out there pursuing a number of leads,” Williams said.

Officials have not named any suspects.

Among Goldfinger’s customers was a man later accused of funding terrorist organizations and defrauding investors, according to court documents
