 About the Book

And he introduced and explained the risks of laundering through dealers in high-value goods. That is just a small selection of the things that first appeared in this book but have since become recognised as norms or standards. Morris-Cotterill wrote the book for a general business readership, not just lawyers and high-level staff in financial institutions: he dealt with compliance in, for example, car dealers and other dealers in high-value goods. So he eschewed complex terms such as Placement, Layering and Integration instead creating the alternatives hiding, moving and investing - terms which have recently found their way into US government documents. How Not To Be A Money Launderer was a ground-breaking book that had an extraordinary ability to predate the development of counter-money laundering laws around the world. And will continue to do so as the risks and approaches developed in it continue to be adopted. The most obvious lesson to be learned is one which goes against the grain of all manner of institutions who think they are too big, too old, to wise to be taken by a fraudster, a money launderer or a negligent employee. No-one is that good. If I see copies of this book on desks in banks, travel agents and second hand car dealers, I will feel a little more confident that I achieved an objective: to make a complex and worrying subject one which can be understood not just by lawyers and senior managers in large organisations, but also by all those who, but for the understanding they gain, might end up in gaol because they did not realise what the law could do to them. If you are in any way involved in the ownership or management of any business, this book will show you what aspects of your business need to be addressed.
