Is Money Laundering a Federal Crime?
Money laundering is a serious federal crime that involves taking money that has been unlawfully obtained and working to integrate it so it may appear to come from a lawful source. Money laundering is a complex process that typically involves a number of different financial transactions and multiple accounts.
With today’s technology, paper trails in money laundering cases may not only be more complex; they may also be more difficult to uncover because so many financial transactions are completed entirely over the internet or using computers.
