International Money Laundering and White Collar Crime
It is estimated that between $600 billion and $1.5 trillion are laundered every year, according to the International Monetary Fund.
Money laundering occurs when a person attempts to conceal the source, destination, or identity of illegally obtained or acquired money, and can be prosecuted at both the state and federal level.
Often, international money laundering charges are accompanied by international drug trafficking charges, as is the case with allegations related to the Black Market Peso Exchange (BMPE), in which U.S. dollars are converted to Colombian pesos through the use of peso brokers and other means, allegedly involving the drug trade.
Many innocent individuals and U.S. companies have been unwittingly caught up in the BMPE system without even knowing it.
