Course Description
There are many ways in which money can be diverted in order to obscure its origins and avoid paying taxes. In Money Laundering: Schemes and Detection Methods, we cover many of the techniques being used to launder money, while also providing an overview of the methods used to detect its existence and build a case against money launderers. The course also describes the essential points of the United States legislation being used to grapple with the problem, and the reporting systems in place to highlight where money laundering may be occurring.
