Politically Exposed Persons (PEP's) are defined as high-risk people because they have more opportunities to gain illegal income such as money laundering, corruption, and bribery than ordinary people. PEPs are not criminals or banned people, but because they are high-risk customers, businesses have to detect PEP's and control their transactions. Bribery and corruption are significant problems in the world. Every year, about 1 trillion dollars of bribery is committed. The amount of crime in the world is estimated at $ 2.6 trillion.
