Money Laundering Charges
Money laundering charges can be very complex. Federal prosecutors in recent years have brought these charges in connection with alleged terrorist activity, illegal wire transfers and transactions involving proceeds from illegal activity.
It is illegal in the United States to disguise the origin of monies in your accounts. Money laundering charges are often connected to drug trafficking. If you take out more than $10,000 in cash from a checking or savings account, the bank is required to report it with a CTR or currency transaction report to the Feds. A bank employee may flag a Suspicious Activity Report by simply checking a box at the top of the form.
You may be under suspicion of money laundering simply going about your business. Maybe you came back from Reno with a big cash win. No matter. If the government believes you have been acting illegally, you not only may be charged with money laundering, but may also suffer asset forfeiture.
