1 ACAMS Credits


Kenneth Rijock is a financial crime consultant. He has more than 25 year's experience in the field of money laundering, as a practicing laundryman, financial compliance consultant, and trainer/lecturer to law and intelligence agencies including the FBI. He has testified three times before US Congress committees. Rijock is a veteran of the conflict in Vietnam and Cambodia, and holds the Combat Infantryman's Badge and Bronze Star Medal. He lives in Miami.

In 1980s Miami, Ken Rijock was the middle man 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 go undercover for the DEA, and he now works with banks and governments to track the new generation of money launderers.
