The crime of money laundering makes it unlawful for any person to conduct or attempt to conduct a transaction through a financial institution with the intent to promote, establish, or facilitate any criminal activity or knowing that the monetary instrument represents the proceeds of or is derived from the proceeds of any criminal activity. Money laundering most commonly involves the concealment or attempt to conceal the source of funds which were illegally obtained.
