How Money Laundering Charges Arise In North Carolina

When investigating an individual or organization for money laundering, law enforcement agencies are looking for both blatant and concealed violations of federal currency regulations. One common scheme is referred to as cash structuring. For example, let's say the street value for a kilogram of cocaine powder is $30,000. Investigators will look to pinpoint cash deposits, typically in even dollar amounts, over a short period of time close to the time they believe the drugs were sold.

In the situation where the client operates a legitimate business, violations typically relate to a failure to report large transactions, as required by law. A few agencies that investigate money laundering are the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF).
