Anti-Money Laundering (AML)

According to the Federal Law on the Prevention and Identification of Operations with Resources of Illegal Origin (LFPIORPI), money laundering is the term that describes the various methods used by criminals to hide the true origin and ownership of the money they make. The crime it is used to legitimize the income from criminal activity and to obscure the financing of even clandestine activities such as terrorism. The evolution continues and the rapid development of laws and regulations against these practices in Mexico and worldwide, has given organizations a greater responsibility to prevent, detect and denounce money laundering.

In addition to financial entities, both legal and natural persons and legal entities that carry out vulnerable activities, such as:

  • Games with bet, contests and draws
  • The issuance or commercialization, habitual and professional credit cards, service or pre-payment
  • All those that constitute monetary value storage instruments
  • The usual or professional issue or commercialization of traveler's checks
