***** Money Laundering Prevention: Deterring, Detecting, and Resolving Financial Fraud. By Jonathan Turner. John Wiley & Sons, www.wiley.com; 204 pages; $55.00.
The Internet facilitates commercial transactions for both legitimate and criminal enterprises. In the book Money Laundering Prevention: Deterring, Detecting, and Resolving Financial Fraud, author Jonathan Turner accurately and succinctly explains this form of criminal operation.
Turner uses his professional experience as a Certified Fraud Examiner and financial investigator to present a clear historic and modern-day explanation of what constitutes money laundering and who engages in the global crime. The reader will learn what the act of money laundering is, why it takes place, the basic activities and operations, and geographic “hot spots” for this illegal enterprise. Unlike many other texts relating to this subject, the book breaks this complex criminal act down into understandable terms and concepts to enlighten and educate.
