Financial transfers were made through these businesses to prepaid, MasterCard cash-card accounts held by the alleged Dubai assassins.Two of the companies mentioned by investigators, Elance Inc. and Rent a Coder (now named vWorker.com), are well-known among freelance computer-programmers.

Neither of the two companies was aware that it had been mentioned in a probe by investigators following the trail of money from the Mabhouh hit.
