Enclosed is a copy of the Department of the Treasury's June
1996 issue of FinCEN Advisory, published by the Department's
Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).
FinCEN Advisory is designed to keep financial institutions,
regulatory agencies and law enforcement agencies advised of
trends and developments related to money laundering and financial
crime. The periodical provides intelligence and analysis for
case support to federal, state, local and international law
enforcement and regulatory agencies, while furnishing financial
communities with the information they need to help prevent
and detect financial crime.
In a continuing effort to assist banks in Bank Secrecy Act
compliance, anti-money laundering efforts, and prevention
and detection of other financial crimes, the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation (FDIC) will forward each issue of FinCEN
Advisory to FDIC-supervised banks. Please circulate copies
to each department of your institution with Bank Secrecy Act
compliance and internal security responsibilities.
Comments about FinCEN Advisory should be addressed to the
Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, Office of Communications,
U. S. Department of the Treasury, 2070 Chain Bridge Road,
Vienna, VA 22182. Comments also may be faxed to FinCEN at
Nicholas J. Ketcha Jr.
