Nice work CNA this article – the experts know what money laundering is but many people don’t and general awareness needs to improve. Netflix series like Ozark or a movie like The Laundromat have perhaps raised awareness on money laundering, but wealth and the flaunting thereof still raises more often awe than suspicion.
Most people don’t realise that there are always serious crimes behind the money to be laundered. It’s called dirty money for a reason. These crimes can involve corruption, trading drugs or endangered species, tax evasion or human trafficking and slavery; things no reasonable and respectable person should be involved in.
