Money laundering is the act of concealing or transferring money obtained through criminal activity and carries a maximum sentence of 14 years’ imprisonment. Any sentence will depend on the levels of money involved, as well as the category of harm.
The offences are classified under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, which also outlines the applicable defences. People can sometimes find themselves enveloped in a money laundering scam without even knowing. There are times when transferring money for friends or family have caused individuals to be involved in transatlantic investigations. Receiving regular expensive gifts or cash from others have also found many in difficulty when there are investigations ongoing with others. We can advise throughout any investigation or if you‘re seeking protection in fear of an allegation arising.
