What is Anti-Monday Laundering?

Money laundering is the process of veiling the origin of illegally acquired money.

The term Anti-money laundering (AML) describes the legal requirements for financial institutions and other regulated companies to prevent, detect, and report money laundering. For example, financial and insurance institutions are obliged to check their customers according to "Know Your Customer" (KYC). This involves a legitimation and identity verification.
