Description

"The gold trade has become 'the money laundering mechanism of choice,' according to internal law enforcement reports, and is being used to wash 'staggering amounts' of dirty cash. . . Basically, drug profits are used to purchase gold, whether as jewelry, ingots, or even scrap, then shipped across borders and resold. The resulting profits are 'clean', the drug trafficker who bought the gold in the first place is free to do with his money as he pleases." David Kaplan reports more on the underground gold trade.
