This book provides an overview of The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and the "Anti-Money Laundering Manual" (AML) which is intended to safeguard the U.S.
financial system and the financial institutions that make up that system from the abuses of financial crime, including money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit financial transactions.
Money laundering and terrorist financing are financial crimes with potentially devastating social and financial effects. The BSA was designed to help identify the source, volume, and movement of currency and other monetary instruments transported or transmitted into or out of the U.S.
or deposited in financial institutions.
