Money laundering is a process by which a person or organization attempts to conceal the source of illegally obtained funds. This is done through a series of complex financial transactions that make the money appear to have originated from legit sources. While money laundering used to involve only organized crime groups, it has expanded to include any type of business or organization, large or small.
