How to Spot Bulk Cash Smuggling

I was recently invited to do a podcast interview with where we discussed the latest AML Training trends – including Bulk Cash Smuggling.

I also wrote a guest blog for’s series “The Expert’s View” entitled How to Spot Bulk Cash Smuggling

In the theory of “what’s old is new again,” I’d like to discuss bulk cash smuggling into Mexico, as that issue is getting a lot of attention. Bulk cash smuggling can be the result of an illegal narcotics operation, a black market peso exchange trade-based money laundering process, or just the final pieces of some other type of scam.
