Federal Agencies Cracking Down on Money Laundering
Money laundering is the practice of taking large amounts of cash earned through illegal means and making it appear as though it was earned through legitimate business dealings. Money laundering has become a worldwide focus of federal authorities. By making money laundering more difficult for businesses, federal authorities hope the risks and penalties that come with it will diminish the amount of illegal activity that generates the money to be laundered, such as drug dealing. As long as criminal organizations can launder money successfully, essentially washing it clean of illegal activity, it will continue to be a way for organizations to earn cash illegally. If convicted of money laundering, individuals can face punishment that includes:
- Fines of $500,000 or twice the value of the property involved in the illicit transaction, whichever is greater
- Up to 20 years in prison
