Money Laundering Investigations


Money Laundering Investigations: Money laundering is the criminal practice of filtering funds gained illegally, such as through the sale and distribution of drugs (“dirty” money), through a series of transactions in which the funds are “cleaned” so that they appear to result from legal activities.


Money Laundering

Money laundering is the criminal practice of filtering funds gained illegally, such as through the sale and distribution of drugs (“dirty” money), through a series of transactions in which the funds are “cleaned” so that they appear to result from legal activities.

Money laundering is the practice of filtering money through various entities to hide the true source of the income. It is most commonly used to hide drug money or embezzlements. Often, when major criminal enterprises are caught, it is because they failed to adequately hide their money trail. If you are involved in a criminal investigation, but you are having trouble tracing the source of the funds involved, call ICS immediately. We can assist with money laundering investigations through the use of our global resource network. We have access to investigators and informants in every corner of the globe. Call us for a free consultation.

Money Laundering Investigations Information:

  • Common laundering methods include
    • Black Market Colombian Peso Exchange
    • Cash smuggling (couriers or bulk cash shipments) and gold purchases
    • Structured deposits and withdrawals to and from bank accounts (called “smurfing”)
    • Purchase of monetary instruments (i.e. cashier’s checks, money orders, traveler’s checks)
    • Wire transfers
    • Underground banking, particularly the “hawala” system in Pakistan and India, and the “fie chen” system in China
    • Offshore banking
  • Ten Fundamental Laws of Money Laundering
    1. The more successful a money laundering apparatus is in imitating the patterns and behavior of legitimate transactions, the less likely it is of being exposed.
    2. The more deeply embedded illegal activities are within the legal economy and the less their institutional and functional separation, the more difficult it is to detect money laundering.
    3. The lower the ratio of illegal to legal financial flows through any given business institution, the more difficult it is to detect money laundering.
    4. The higher the ratio of illegal "services" to physical goods production in any economy, the more easily money laundering can be conducted in that economy.
    5. The more the business structure of production and distribution of non-financial goods and services is dominated by small and independent firms or self-employed individuals, the more difficult the job of separating legal from illegal transactions.
    6. The greater the facility of using checks, credit cards and other non-cash instruments for effecting illegal financial transactions, the more difficult it is to detect money laundering.
    7. The greater the degree of financial deregulation for legitimate transactions, the more difficult it is to trace and neutralize criminal money.
    8. The lower the ratio of illegally to legally earned income entering any given economy from outside, the harder it is to separate criminal from legal money transfers.
    9. The greater the progress towards the financial services supermarket and the greater the degree to which all manner of financial services can be met within one integrated multi-divisional institution, the more difficult it is to detect money laundering.
    10. The greater the contradiction between global operation and national regulation of financial markets, the more difficult the detection of money laundering.
