Money Laundering and Its Process
Money laundering is a method where the earnings of criminal activities are changed into ostensibly rightful money or other kinds of assets. Given below is the process of money laundering.
In this stage, the money launderer puts in his or her dirty money to a legitimate financial institution. This often happens in form of cash bank deposits. It is one of the riskiest phases of laundering process because big amounts of cash are mostly noticeable. Banks are generally required to report the concerned authorities of any such transactions.
It involves sending the money via different financial transactions for changing its form in order to make it hard to follow. The step consist many bank to bank transfers, making deposits and withdrawing them to vary the amount of money in accounts, changing the currency of the money and buying items of high-value for changing the money’s form. Layering is one of the most complicated steps in the laundering scheme. It is about making the dirty money difficult to trace.
This is the final stage of the process. It is the movement of previously laundered money into economy primarily through banking system and so these kinds of monies look like normal business earnings. It is dissimilar to layering because in this stage detection as well as identification of the laundered funds is offered through the informants. The different methods that are used in this stage include selling of property for integrating the laundered money back into economy by criminals, using of fake invoices by export/import firms for integrating illegal proceeds back into economy etc. It is difficult to catch the launderer during this stage through fraud investigation services if there isn’t any documentation at the earlier stages.
