How is Money Laundering Defined?
When criminals attempt to relocate their illicit funds by transferring them to a lawful financial system without arousing any legal attention, this constitutes Money Laundering.
Once a criminal or terrorist person(s) transfers their funds into legitimate financial systems, they can then transfer them between banks or financial products to use in illegal activities, purchase goods and services, or even fund terrorism.
FMCL will report any attempt by an individual or business to conceal the origin and ownership of the proceeds of illegal activities, including fraud, theft, illegal gambling, drug trafficking, and other activities.
Do I Need to Prove My Identity Before Opening a Forex Trading Account?
To prevent Money Laundering, FMCL requests that all of our customers provide supporting documentation for proof of identity and the origin of their funds before trading Forex with us. We place great emphasis on verifying the identity of our customers and determining that their funds are derived from a legal origin before opening an FX trading account or making a deposit. As part of this policy, you will be required to provide legal documentation to verify your name, personal details and location.
