Anti-Money Laundering

Money laundering is fundamental to the survival of these criminal organizations
and, in turn, the illicit activities they perpetrate — such as human trafficking and drug trafficking. These organized criminals are making increasingly complex attempts to avoid detection.BSA compliance departments have to be fast moving and utilize next generation technology to detect these criminals' increasingly complex schemes.

How Verafin can help improve your AML program:

Analyzes flow of funds of all transaction types

Automatic analysis of the flow of funds of all transaction types in and out of accounts: including ACH, wire, cash, ATM, check, and monetary instruments.

Generates risk-rated alerts

A risk-rated money laundering alert is generated customer activity goes outside their normal behavior range, allowing you to prioritize your review workload.

Summarizes evidence & statistics

Each alert includes related evidence, statistics and transactions to optimize your review and focus your investigation.

Creates & pre-populates SARs

Quickly create and electronically submit a pre-populated Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) in one click.

Beyond compliance

Anti-money laundering must be viewed as more than a compliance requirement by government regulations. It should be viewed as both a measure in self-preservation and, at a societal level, a responsibility. An effective AML program can help uncover the illicit activities funding drug trafficking, human trafficking and terrorism.

Money Laundering Detection

Money laundering involves disguising or concealing the proceeds of unlawful activity. While, anti-money laundering is about detecting and preventing this illegal and suspicious activity. Money launderers typically move their dirty money around in multiple ways to avoid detection; however, Verafin helps detect this activity.

Fraud Detection

Verafin incorporates a variety of fraud detection features.

Debit Card Fraud

Debit cards are not only popular with consumers — criminals are also developing new and often sophisticated ways to use the cards and their information to steal from your customers. Ensuring it is detected and stopped requires a progressive and sophisticated solution.

Online Banking Fraud

Online banking fraud continues to wreak havoc on banks and credit unions across the country. With recent cases of high dollar value losses, and reports of banks suing customers and customers suing banks, there is a clear need for a solution to address this growing problem.

Account Fraud

Criminals use any means necessary to steal from your customers. Verafin’s account fraud functionality analyzes your customers’ accounts, looking for signs of fraudulent activity. From suspicious behavior for new accounts to risky check transactions, Verafin alerts you to the out-of-the-ordinary.

Check Fraud

Even with the rise in online banking and debit card fraud, criminals are still using check fraud and kiting schemes to cause financial institutions extensive losses.
