ACAMS Switzerland Chapter Dec 2023 Virtual Event: Reformed money launderer: Interview with Kenneth Rijock, author of “The Laundry Man”
The ACAMS Switzerland Chapter is excited to host a forthcoming webinar featuring Kenneth Rijock, a former Banking lawyer turned-career money launderer (10 years), turned compliance officer specializing in Enhanced Due Diligence, and Financial Crime Consultant.
In 1980s Miami, Ken Rijock was the middleman between the Colombians and the domestic cartels flooding America's streets with cocaine. Every Friday, carrying hundreds of thousands of dollars in a tattered suitcase, he would fly by private jet to a tax haven in the Caribbean. Rijock's operation was responsible for 'cleaning' over $200 million of dirty cash. And all the time he was in love with a cop. It finally came crashing down when a client testified against him. He agreed to go undercover for the DEA, and he now works with banks and governments to track the new generation of money launderers. Like Frank Abagnale's "Catch Me If You Can" and Howard Marks' "Mr Nice", "The Laundry Man" is the remarkable story of an ordinary man caught up in an extraordinary life.
As a practicing “laundryman” and globe trotter, Kenneth certainly has many stories to share, and we are keen on getting his views on the AML efforts and new ways found to launder money.
Attendees can anticipate a lively educational session, providing professionals with a refreshing view on the complex AML field. Don’t forget to check Kenneth’s blog and https://rijock.blogspot.com/
