What Is Money Laundering?
Some individuals charged with money laundering do not understand it. If you attempt to pay someone with money you have received from illegal acts or make an attempt to deposit illegally obtained funds into a corporate shell or bank account, the charge could be money laundering. If convicted of the crime, the money is gone and the prison sentence is long.
This is a charge that is often filed against drug dealers. The reason for this is because drug dealers want to “legitimize” their money from the sale of drugs. This means they are concealing where the funds come from. Sometimes they may make it appear as if the money came from legal activities.
Unfortunately, there are completely innocent individuals who are charged with money laundering when they had nothing to do with the crime. If a drug dealer has a friend deposit money into a bank account for them and that money is “dirty money,” the charge can be money laundering if the amount deposited was more than $10,000 and not reported to the IRS.

It can be very confusing to be charged with money laundering, especially if you were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time or you were simply doing someone a favor. Then again, you may have mistakenly committed the crime. Drugs are not the only services or products that can be provided illegally. Drug dealers usually know what they have done, but there are acts within the corporate world that can be misconstrued as money laundering. If this is you, Myles A. Schneider is ready to help the moment you make the call.
