Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is NOT a step in Money Laundering

    • A.

      Placement

    • B.

      Layering

    • C.

      Spending

    • D.

      Re-Integration

    Correct Answer
    C. Spending
    Explanation
    Spending is not a step in money laundering because it involves the legitimate use of funds for purchasing goods or services. Money laundering typically involves three main steps: placement, layering, and re-integration. Placement refers to the process of introducing illegal funds into the financial system. Layering involves complex transactions to obscure the origin and ownership of the funds. Re-integration is the final step where the laundered money is integrated back into the legitimate economy. Spending, on the other hand, is a normal and legal activity that does not involve hiding or disguising the source of funds.

    D. Layering
    Explanation
    Layering is the correct term used to describe the process of sending money through multiple financial institutions to make it difficult to track. This technique involves moving funds through various accounts and transactions, creating multiple layers of complexity and obfuscation. The purpose of layering is to obscure the origin and destination of the funds, making it challenging for authorities to trace and detect any illicit activities such as money laundering or terrorist financing.

    Correct Answer
    D. Smurfing
    Explanation
    Smurfing is the term used to describe the practice of breaking up large sums of money into smaller amounts for deposit in order to avoid detection by authorities. This is done to circumvent the requirement for banks to report deposits of $10,000.00 or more, as multiple smaller deposits may not trigger the reporting threshold. Smurfing is often associated with illegal activities such as money laundering, as it allows individuals or organizations to conceal the true source or purpose of the funds.

    Money laundering is the process by which the proceeds of criminal activity are introduced into legitimate mainstream of financial commerce.

    • A.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Money laundering is the act of disguising the origins of illegally obtained money by passing it through a complex sequence of banking transfers or commercial transactions. This process allows the illicit funds to appear legitimate and be integrated into the legal economy. Therefore, the statement that money laundering is the process by which the proceeds of criminal activity are introduced into the legitimate mainstream of financial commerce is true.

  • 12. 

    A customer comes in four days in a row, each time requesting a transfer of $2,900. You do not need to report this as a suspicious activity. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The customer's behavior of requesting the same amount of money for four consecutive days raises suspicion. This could indicate a pattern of potential money laundering or illegal activity. Therefore, it is necessary to report this activity as suspicious to the appropriate authorities.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which of these activities might require a suspicious activity report?

    • A.

    All of these activities might require a suspicious activity report because they exhibit behaviors that are indicative of potential illegal or fraudulent activities. Cancelling a transaction to avoid providing identification, requesting unusually high dollar transactions without explanation or source of funds, appearing nervous and asking unusual questions, and attempting to bribe a teller are all red flags that warrant reporting to authorities for further investigation.

    A. Unusual volume of payment destinations, often with the same provider
    C. Numerous withdrawals, just under the qualifying threshold
    E. Multiple and frequent deposits followed by multiple and frequent withdrawals, either shortly afterwards or overlapping further deposits
    Explanation
    The three possible indicators to look for in Money Laundering are: unusual volume of payment destinations, often with the same provider; numerous withdrawals, just under the qualifying threshold; and multiple and frequent deposits followed by multiple and frequent withdrawals, either shortly afterwards or overlapping further deposits. These indicators suggest suspicious activity where funds are being moved around rapidly and in large quantities, potentially to disguise the source or destination of the money.

    C. Layering
    Explanation
    Layering is the laundering stage that separates the illicit money from its source, obscures the audit trail, and severs links with the original crime to make it appear like a normal financial transaction. During this stage, multiple complex transactions are conducted, often involving different jurisdictions and financial institutions, in order to confuse and complicate the tracing of the money. This process typically includes the use of shell companies, offshore accounts, and various financial instruments to further conceal the illicit origin of the funds.

Layering involves conducting multiple transactions to obscure the source of the funds and create a complex trail. Integration is the final stage, where the laundered money is reintroduced into the legitimate economy, making it difficult to trace its illicit origins. Therefore, the correct answer is placement, integration, and layering.

    • A.

      Unrealistic wealth compared to profile.

      Trades with no/little benefits and losses without concern.

    • C.

Unrealistic wealth compared to profile could indicate potential fraudulent activity or misrepresentation. Trades with no/little benefits and losses without concern could suggest risky or unethical behavior. Large/rapid movement of funds could be a sign of money laundering or other illegal financial activities. Therefore, all of these factors would raise concerns and be considered red flags in a business relationship.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Which of the following is NOT a 'high risk' customer?

    • A.

      Cash intensive business eg money transfer, casinos etc.

    • B.

      Customers with complex structures that make identifying ownership difficult.

    • C.

      A PEPs stockbroker.

    • D.

      A customer whose ownership structure is through 'bearer shares'.

    Correct Answer
    C. A PEPs stockbroker.
    Explanation
    A PEPs stockbroker is not considered a 'high risk' customer because PEPs (Politically Exposed Persons) are individuals who hold prominent public positions, such as government officials or high-ranking executives in state-owned enterprises. While PEPs themselves are considered high risk due to their potential involvement in corruption or money laundering, a stockbroker who deals with PEPs is not inherently high risk as long as they follow proper due diligence and regulatory procedures. The other options listed - cash intensive businesses, customers with complex ownership structures, and customers with ownership through 'bearer shares' - are all typically associated with higher risk due to the potential for money laundering or illicit activities.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Which one of the following is NOT a 'low risk' customer?

    • A.

      Other regulated financial institutions.

    • B.

      Listed Companies.

    • C.

      Government and Public Authorities.

    • D.

      Charities.

    Correct Answer
    D. Charities.
    Explanation
    Charities are not considered as 'low risk' customers because they often handle large amounts of money and donations, making them potential targets for money laundering or other financial crimes. Unlike other regulated financial institutions, listed companies, and government/public authorities, charities may have less stringent financial controls and oversight, making them more vulnerable to risks associated with financial transactions. Therefore, charities are not classified as 'low risk' customers.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Who does Compliance Responsibility lie with?

    • A.

      Board of Directors

    • B.

      Senior Management & Staff

    • C.

      Compliance Office

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the Above
    Explanation
    Compliance responsibility lies with all of the above options, which include the Board of Directors, Senior Management & Staff, and the Compliance Office. This means that all individuals in these positions have a role to play in ensuring compliance with laws, regulations, and internal policies. The Board of Directors sets the overall compliance tone and provides oversight, while Senior Management & Staff are responsible for implementing and enforcing compliance measures. The Compliance Office, on the other hand, is specifically tasked with developing and managing compliance programs. Therefore, all three options share the responsibility for compliance.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Which of the following is not acceptable as verification of identity?

    • A.

      Passport

    • B.

      Driving Licence

    • C.

      Birth Certificate

    Correct Answer
    C. Birth Certificate
    Explanation
    Birth Certificate is not acceptable as verification of identity because it does not contain a photograph or physical description of the individual, making it easier to forge or impersonate someone else. Passports and Driving Licences, on the other hand, typically include a photograph and other personal details, making them more reliable forms of identification.
