Money Laundering Expert, Author, and Professor Indicted

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York has indicted Bruce Bagley, a University of Miami professor in the Dept. of International Studies, on charges of money laundering and conspiracy.  Mr. Bagley is the author of a book on money laundering and organized crime and according to his bio, he served as an expert consultant for the UN, Dept. of State, FBI, DEA and several Latin American countries. The indictment claims that Mr. Bagley opened bank accounts for the sole purpose of moving money for corrupt foreign nationals.  

Let that be a lesson to everyone. Don’t believe people who claim to be money laundering experts, teach a lot of money laundering classes, advise governments and financial institutions, and write a book on the topic of money laundering…..oh wait a minute,that’s the same as my bio!! Hmmm…er…hmm…ahh…. I may have to rethink that theory!

Note to self: The title of my next book will be, “Do Stupid Stuff – Get Arrested!
