Money laundering is a white collar crime that involves disguising the origins of illegally obtained funds. The illegally obtained money may have been earned through drug trafficking, various types of fraud, accounting crimes, tax evasion, public corruption or other criminal means. Because money laundering is connected with drug trafficking and terrorism, it may be investigated by the FBI, IRS, DEA and other federal agencies.
In the United States, the Bank Secrecy Act requires that cash transactions that exceed $10,000 must be reported on a currency transaction report, which identifies the person making the transaction and the source of the funds. Additionally, financial institutions can generate a Suspicious Activity Report, which identifies funds which they suspect come from illegal activity. The Money Laundering Control Act of 1986 criminalizes this activity (Chapter 1315: TRANSMITTERS OF MONEY; CHECK-CASHING BUSINESSES).
