How do money laundering schemes work?
They range from being very simple, such as putting it through the till of a cash business like a pub or a shop, to highly complicated networks. Most sophisticated money laundering schemes involve three stages:

- Integration: when criminal money becomes absorbed into the economy, such as through investment in property
