ACAMS 13th Annual AML & Financial Crime Conference

CH1 - Trouble on the I-95 Corridor - The Illicit Movement of People, Drugs, Goods and Cash

Sep 29, 2014 1:15pm ‐ Sep 29, 2014 2:30pm


The I-95 Corridor connects the largest cities in the Northeast. It also provides an efficient and direct route for criminal groups to transport the proceeds of crime through several states in a matter of hours. This presents a unique problem for both law enforcement and financial institutions as they strive to identify, investigate, and curtail these illegal activities. This session will describe four major types of smuggling along this corridor and provide insight for financial institutions tracking transactions flowing down the highway.

In particular, the session will focus on:
The movement of people – human and labor trafficking
The movement of drugs – medical marijuana to heroin
The movement of goods – tobacco, fuel, and counterfeit items
The movement of cash – online gambling, drugs, and check cashing
