Money Laundering: Legislation, Regulation, and Enforcement
Select a format
This book provides an updated and comprehensive review of the subject of anti-money laundering activity. Given the huge complexity of domestic and global money laundering schemes and networks and the increased complexity of the laws designed to prevent and detect money laundering, it has become more difficult for practitioners, courts, and scholars to manage the scope of its ever-changing features.
The useful text is designed to organize and simplify (to the extent possible) the explanation of the laws, regulations, and salient cases. The book also examines the role of the regulatory agencies, U.S. Department of Justice prosecution policies, most common methods of money laundering, and how legitimate financial institutions, in concert with other professionals, facilitate the practically open and notorious operation of money laundering activities.
This book covers the following topics in depth:
• Bank Secrecy Act
• The USA Patriot Act
• Money Laundering Crimes and Criminal Penalties
• Role of Government Agencies and Advisory Organizations
• Information Sharing Among Financial Institutions and Law Enforcement
• Global Enforcement Cooperation Measures
• And more!
This book is a must-have for federal and state prosecutors looking to build a criminal case, whistleblowers and their attorneys, and criminal defense attorneys. This book is an excellent resource for those involved in cases raising issues regarding the transfer of funds and compliance efforts to meet the growing demands to adhere strictly to the law.
