Open to the Public

Money launderers, fraudsters, and other criminals are hard at work during the pandemic to take advantage of the chaos, anxiety, and fear brought in the wake of the coronavirus. Our webinar will focus on pandemic-related money laundering and fraud, including the criminal possibilities resulting from the price gyrations and shortages of personal protective equipment (PPEs), medical miracle cures, and fraudulent sale of a COVID-19 vaccine. These issues affect not only banks and other financial institutions but also hospitals, state governments, and consumers.
