Financial Crimes Enforcement Network

FinCEN fines well-known, global money service transmitter for BSA AML violations

Repeated findings of willful non-compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) anti-money laundering (AML) requirements for money service transmitters resulted in FinCEN assessing a civil money penalty of $184 million dollars against a popular, international money service transmitter business. Required AML controls, new agent due diligence, transaction monitoring and delayed suspicious activity reporting (SAR) were cited as deficient and the result of a weak compliance culture. FinCEN was joined in this enforcement action by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
