Money Laundering Charges in Columbus

When an individual or company receives money obtained in illegal activities and then takes steps to make it appear such fund were generated by a legitimate business it is called "money laundering". There are various methods of doing this, but the primary activity is to charge a higher price for services or products than was actually received and funnel illegal funds into the business's receipts. This makes it difficult to trace the actual source of the funds. Money laundering is considered fraud and is a very serious offense which carries heavy penalties that can include not just fines, but a prison sentence.
