AML Specialist SmartSearch Slams FinCen Leak

Subscribe to our newsletter

John Dobson, CEO at AML experts SmartSearch, has expressed outrage at the revelations contained in the FinCEN files of criminal cash being moved around by the world’s biggest financial institutions, including the UK’s HSBC. “This is nothing short of a betrayal for all those thousands of businesses doing their bit in the global fight against money laundering and financial fraud,” he said.

“If these documents can be believed, one of the world’s biggest banks has effectively turned a blind eye and enabled criminals to take full advantage. These revelations couldn’t have come at a worse time of course, with so many businesses reeling from the ongoing affects of the Covid 19 pandemic, and the extra security threats that has created. Events like these are hugely damaging for the banks involved but also for all the other banks who are trying to stamp out money laundering, and it cannot go unpunished.”
