As the current global financial crisis deepens, the instances of financial crime are expected to increase, as people and organisations struggle to find ways to survive in these tougher times and the temptation of financial crime increases. Therefore, the importance for regulators to ensure enforcement is, more than ever, considered vital to fight against crime.
One of the most common criminal activity is money laundering. Many agencies and governments around the globe have put their efforts together to fight against it especially after the events of 9/11 in New York. Several bodies in Europe legislate the area of anti money laundering and for the purpose of this dissertation, the author has concentrated on the Third Money Laundering Directive by the European Commission.
The EU's objectives are clear, solid and well defined. However, the fact that the criminal activity has increased in the on-line payment industry in the recent years suggests that there might be deficiencies in the regulatory framework. Identify them is the first step towards improvement.
