A Crisis that is Anything but Synthetic

By Cory Bretz | January 31, 2020
The Problems Caused by Fentanyl and Other Synthetic Opioids, and What the AML Community Can Do to Help In the early nineteenth century, opium addiction was such a problem in China that the government threatened the death penalty for anyone caught smuggling the drug.

Triangle Fraud: A Crime with Triple the Number of Victims

By Diane Dylinski | December 11, 2019
Triangle fraud involves a unique twist on the sale of stolen goods. This fraud gets its name from the crime resulting in three different parties falling victims to the scheme: a cardholder, a merchant, and a buyer. The maneuver is made deliberately complex to obscure the criminal’s identity and make it difficult to follow the flow of funds. To understand why triangle fraud exists, one must think like a criminal. Tangible goods purchased online must get shipped to a physical location where someone has to retrieve the merchandise. The inherent risk for theft is being caught as the receiver of stolen property. Criminals attempt to sidestep this issue by shipping stolen goods to a third party.
