What is Money Laundering?
- Money laundering is the process by which criminals attempt to hide the origins of illegally acquired money, which is used to fund their criminal activity.
- This involves transferring the money through international bank accounts or businesses to try and make the funds a legitimate asset.
What are your responsibilities?
- It is your responsibility to ensure that these incidences are documented and reported.
- As a staff member, you need to be aware of any suspicious activities that may be the result of money laundering.
- When at work, you might witness something that does not seem quite right. If you have a transaction with a customer or an interaction with another staff member that makes you feel uneasy and concerned, it is likely that there may be a reason for your suspicion.
- If patrons are hedging their bets or seem to be intentionally losing money, this could be considered suspicious behaviour. Customers that request a cheque or payout voucher may be trying to create a paper trail, to try and legitimise their funds and hide where it came from.
- In your role, you may come across counterfeit money. Counterfeit money is any fake currency that is produced illegally. It is commonly larger denominations, like $50 notes, that are counterfeited.
- It is your responsibility to document any large payouts in order to prevent money laundering.
- Some organised crime groups may attempt to launder large amounts of money through gaming machines or the TAB.
Identifying High-Risk Customers
- A high risk customer is anyone who is at greater risk of being involved in money laundering.
- Politically Exposed Persons are high risk customers. These are individuals who hold a position of power or influence in the public eye and are therefore more likely to be a target of bribes and corruption.
- Known criminals, such as motorcycle gang members, will also be at a higher risk of being involved in money laundering.
