Go on a money laundering "ride along" starting with the bad guys’ perspective on how criminals abuse the financial system to the various lines of defense financial institutions provide via their sound quality AML programs. We’ll emphasize the SAR process including how to write a proper narrative. We’ll finish with how and why information is shared with law enforcement and what law enforcement does with the information. Finally we’ll reverse engineer the process to indicate why actions taken on the back end are influenced by the AML policy and procedures from the beginning of a relationship.

✓ Suspicious Activity Reporting:  What regulators and law enforcement look for in a SAR.  Learn to identify the red flags of money laundering. When and how to complete a proper SAR narrative.  What happens to a SAR when it leaves your desk. Unusual Activity Reports.
