"$AUD1000"?[edit]

This is used on the page: $AUD1000. What denomination is that? Since it discusses activities of the US, shouldn't it use US dollars? -Frecklefoot —Preceding undated comment added 17:51, 5 February 2003‎

I just removed that, and added US currency notation. I think that this could end up being the most useful information on the wikipedia. --DropDeadGorgias —Preceding undated comment added 20:08, 6 March 2003‎

global regulatory agencies AML/CFT[edit]

suggest to separate global players like IMF, World Bank, Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the world anti-money laundering body and the likes into a separate section. they all use this "insider acronym" that wikipedia hasnt indexed yet: AML/CFT, which automatically connects money laundring with terror financing, as if they were siamese twins

AML/CFT is also in the US code, particularly the dept homeland security and dept of treasury.

EU uses the equivalent term, see What are money laundering and terrorist financing? --Wuerzele (talk) 08:33, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Page Publicity[edit]

So this page was featured in season 3 episode 12 of the Emmy winning (16 wins) TV series Breaking Bad... So is there a way to give the page a banner, or something...? Yeah, I guess that's not really "encyclopedia behavior", but this is not "any encyclopedia"... Even just a little italic sentence saying "This page was featured on the hit Emmy-winning series Breaking Bad" UsernameTBD (talk) 01:33, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Those mentions go on the talk page, not the main article page. There was a template in the heading at the top here, but it wasn't working right. I think it's fixed now. 2600:1006:B110:34CE:B945:D20A:9451:85D (talk) 02:21, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

pov[edit]

Does the author of this article not seem a tad enthusiastic about the subject? Or is it just me?137.205.183.82 (talk) 12:09, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Examples Removed[edit]

Why were the examples removed from the "Method" section? These general examples contributed to the understanding of the topic. They were removed by an anonymous user, without any comment. Is there some wikipedia policy against including what would appear to be instructions for criminal activity? 159.172.43.6 (talk) 17:37, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Replaced the deleted content. If there was a good reason for removing it in the first place, please revert and talk about it here. Assuming good faith, I suspect that this removed either out of a concern for public morality, or for being overly detailed. Phildonnia (talk) 23:15, 25 April 2016 (UTC)

United States AML laws section is not good[edit]

This short history is a good start.
