Casinos are famously vulnerable to financial crimes due to the inherent cash nature of their business. This course provides an overview of the types of criminal activities which can take place in the gaming industry, such as money laundering by drug traffickers, organized crime, and movement of money for terrorist financing. You will learn about the law, Title 31, that enables casinos and investigative agencies to combat money laundering, taking a look at cases in which money laundering was suspected in the casino environment and subsequently stopped by law enforcement. The requirements of Title 31 are fully explained along with how to identify suspicious activity and record transactions that don’t fit the profile of legitimate gaming. Forms used in reporting, such as SARC and CTRC are described in detail including how and where to file them. An overview of FinCEN, the collection point for information related to financial crimes is given and the implications of The Patriot Act on Title 31 are also explained fully. The course then concludes with a summary of the roles played by a range of casino employees in providing valuable information when it comes to solving crimes.
