Key Information About FinCEN:
Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), which was established on April 25, 1990, serves as the Financial Intelligence Unit of the United States of America at home and abroad. Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (Fincen) is an authorized body of the Treasury Department to combat financial crimes in the USA. FinCEN collects and examines information about financial transactions to prevent money laundering, terrorist financing and other financial crimes.
The mission of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (Fincen) is to protect the financial system and financial services from organized crime organizations and effectively combat money laundering. In addition, FinCEN aims to facilitate the detection of financial crimes by increasing the integrity of the financial sector.
FinCEN examines reports from financial institutions to check whether money laundering or terrorist financing crimes have been committed. FinCEN also works to take action by informing financial institutions about suspects and suspicious activities. FinCEN's field of activity is vast. FinCEN aims to detect and prevent all illegal transactions from the most complicated crime to the most straightforward crime. With the USA Patriot Act, which came into force in 2001, FinCEN has become a significant US authority, investigating people with increased powers and suspected of money laundering and terrorist financing.
