What is money laundering?

Money laundering is a specific type of illegal or criminal activity that results in the culmination of large amounts of money. It is more intricate in that, however, because to have been suspected of money laundering means that a person has been making these criminal activities, such as drug trafficking or terrorist funding, appear as a legitimate source of income. Our fraud solicitor has experience with this kind of incident and can offer more insight. The laundering part of this crime refers to the cleaning of money, which is presumed dirty due to its source.
