Money Laundering is a complex Federal and Texas crime. To many people, the term “Money Laundering” conjures up images of organized crime figures washing large piles of cash in secret hideouts. These images are largely the product of Hollywood fantasy and bear little resemblance to the modern crime of Money Laundering. Generally speaking, Money Laundering laws make it unlawful to engage in transactions with the proceeds of criminal activity. A number of Federal and Texas Money Laundering statutes outline this concept with varying degrees of specificity. Examples of money laundering might include:
Using the proceeds of a crime to buy a house, car, or other item
Sending the proceeds of a crime to another bank account by wire transfer
Transferring funds to conceal the source of an illegal payment
Using the proceeds of a crime to promote legitimate business activities
Transferring the proceeds of a crime to a spouse or business partner
Converting the proceeds of a crime into securities or cryptocurrency
