Money laundering is defined as “ the cleaning or disguising of the origins of the proceeds of crime”. Various schemes range in their nature and severity, however there are effectively only two types of money laundering. Firstly there are ‘own proceeds’, where a person launders the proceeds of their offence. Apart from this Do-It-Yourself style, there is also third party laundering. This involves a person, other than the prime-mover of the principal offence, laundering money on their behalf.
