BSA-AML Civil Money Penalties
We've compiled information on Civil Money Penalties imposed on financial institutions, check cashers, brokers, etc., since 2004. FinCEN and the federal regulators, the SEC, state authorities and other agencies have imposed some hefty cash penalties for non-compliance with BSA and AML laws and regulations. We've summarized them here, with brief descriptions of the issues raised in the CMP orders. This can be a terrific resource for "scare tactic" training materials.
