Money Laundering Awareness

Have you ever thought about the journey your cash might have taken to get to you? Would you have any idea if it had been used in a crime?

Every year, billions of pounds are illegally laundered through the UK. Any one of us could be handling laundered money without even realising it!

'Money laundering' is a tactic used by criminals to turn profits from illegal activity into seemingly 'honest' proceeds. By legitimising these ill-gotten gains, criminality can continue to thrive, thereby funding further corruption and terrorism, undermining financial sectors and negatively impacting the economy as a whole.

To prevent 'dirty' money from flowing freely through our system, it's vital that companies and individuals know how to spot this type of financial crime.

This elearning module includes a range of learning activities to help you develop your understanding of money laundering and how to prevent it.

When you finish the course, you'll be asked to demonstrate your understanding by completing a short assessment.‍

By the end of the course you should be able to:

  • Describe what money laundering is and how it is done
  • Understand UK legislation and regulations regarding money laundering and what they cover
  • Explain how to prevent money laundering
  • Recognise the consequences of non-compliance with anti-money laundering legislation
