AUSTRAC's 2012 typologies report is the sixth in an annual series of reports produced by the agency.
The 2012 report includes 21 real-life case studies illustrating how legitimate services offered by Australian businesses have been exploited for criminal purposes. By highlighting these past examples of criminal activity, the report educates Australian businesses about their money laundering and terrorism financing risks and helps them recognise and mitigate these risks.
