Typologies, Case study

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.

Typologies, Case study

The AUSTRAC typologies and case studies report 2009 is the third in a series of reports AUSTRAC has produced to assist industry to fulfil its anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing obligations.

The 42 case studies within this report illustrate how legitimate businesses and financial channels have been misused for money laundering and other crimes such as drug importation and trafficking, tax evasion and credit card fraud. The report also highlights many 'red flag' indicators - examples of suspicious customer behaviour that may suggest illicit activities.
