FinCEN Advisory

Enclosed is a copy of the Department of the Treasury's June 1996 issue of FinCEN Advisory,
published by the Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).


FinCEN Advisory is designed to keep financial institutions, regulatory agencies and law
enforcement agencies advised of trends and developments related to money laundering and
financial crime. The periodical provides intelligence and analysis for case support to federal,
state, local and international law enforcement and regulatory agencies, while furnishing financial
communities with the information they need to help prevent and detect financial crime.


In a continuing effort to assist banks in Bank Secrecy Act compliance, anti-money laundering
efforts, and prevention and detection of other financial crimes, the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation (FDIC) will forward each issue of FinCEN Advisory to FDIC-supervised banks.
Please circulate copies to each department of your institution with Bank Secrecy Act compliance
and internal security responsibilities.
Comments about FinCEN Advisory should be addressed to the Financial Crimes Enforcement
Network, Office of Communications, U. S. Department of the Treasury, 2070 Chain Bridge
Road, Vienna, VA 22182. Comments also may be faxed to FinCEN at (703) 905-3885.
