WHITEPAPER: A NEW TOOL TO IDENTIFY INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR LAUNDERING

There is something simple we can do to ebb the tide of money laundering investigations resulting in nothing more than bank shareholders financing the institution’s payment of massive fines. The truth is, we rarely figure out the “who done it” when tens of billions in illicit funds are laundered. I have prepared a whitepaper for those interested in reducing financial crime and fighting money laundering. I hope to find leaders in the law enforcement, regulatory, and banking sector willing to form a committee to assess my proposal, attempt to craft it into a regulation, and offer it to legislators for enactment. Some will say this isn’t necessary, but if not this, what new idea can the committee develop that will make a difference. New ideas are desperately needed because business as usual is not making a difference.

MAKING OF AN INFILTRATOR: WHAT DOES A MONEY LAUNDERER LOOK LIKE? EPISODE 3 – PART 4

Robert Mazur briefly reviews the key issues previously covered in Part 3 of this series that addressed what a money launderer looks like. He then discusses one of four primary factors one should assess to determine money laundering risk, the “BUSINESS TYPE” factor. He focuses on key red flags within “BUSINESS TYPES”, including the enhanced due diligence that should be applied to businesses that are simultaneously involved in cross border transactions, that carry out large volumes of value movements, that sell products difficult to externally measure, that offer value transfer systems, and that are unregulated. Using that criteria, he identifies one particular type of business that, although not commonly thought to be a vehicle for money laundering, is an asset to launderers that might corruptly operate such a business.
