Over US$1.5 trillion in 'dirty' money is washed and moved around the world every year, much of it by organized crime syndicates grossing more than many developed economies. And amazingly all the facilities you need to launder money can be bought off the Internet.
Dirty Dealing is the first book to truly expose the awesome scale and scope of global money laundering and its infiltration into the world's legitimate business structures. Peter Lilley lifts the lid on this murky and frightening underworld to reveal how highly organized and sophisticated criminal organizations and terrorist groups are seriously undermining the economies of many countries, their financial systems, governments and businesses. Full of incredible stories, facts and figures, it has been extensively revised and includes information on:
the funding of international terrorism;
major national and international criminal groups;
the impact of the Internet and 'cyber laundering';
anti-money laundering strategies for all types of businesses.
A shocking and eye-opening account, Dirty Dealing is the first book to show how the proceeds of global organized crime are laundered throughout the world's banking systems to emerge without a hint of a stain, and more than likely into your bank account or pocket.
