Webinar 57/2018 International money laundering - Money Mules and Cash Collection Patterns
Date: 
24 September 2018
Time: 
10:00 – 12:00 CEST
Organiser: 
CEPOL
Description: 

Organised crime generates vast amount of cash which criminals need to handle and reinvest either into the legal or into the illegal economy. In order to reduce the risk of being caught with unexplainable dirty money criminal groups often use professional cash couriers and money mules who support them in the collection, transport and distribution of dirty money facilitating the international concealment of illegal funds. In the past professional money launderers often recruited money mules from their ethnic communities using occasionally naïve intermediaries while sometimes wilful collaborators. Money mule networks evolved in time though and got more professional, sophisticated and well resourced.

This training event aims to raise awareness on how professional money mule networks work, what is their role in the cross-border money laundering process, how they can be detected and targeted by law enforcement operations. Good law enforcement practice through case studies will be demonstrated by French and German colleagues in this webinar focusing on the relevant intelligence actions and investigations with particular reference on the international cooperation needs.

Target Audience: 

Law enforcement officers detecting and investigating financial crimes. Police, customs and judiciary officers are all welcome.
