FinCEN Advisory: Funds 'Travel' Regulations: Questions and Answers, January 1997, Issue 7 [open pdf - 211KB]
The FinCEN Advisory "...is a recurring series designed for the financial, regulatory and law enforcement communities. Subsequent advisories will describe trends and developments related to money laundering and financial crime." In this issue of FinCEN: "The funds transfer rules are designed to help law enforcement agencies detect, investigate and prosecute money laundering and other financial crimes by preserving an information trail about persons sending and receiving funds through funds transfer systems. The attached guidance is intended to answer general, basic questions concerning the implementation of the new regulations. It is not meant to be comprehensive and does not replace or supersede the regulations. These questions and answers and the Travel rule should be examined in concert with the Treasury's related recordkeeping rule concerning the transmittal of funds."
