Advancing technology has improved the ability of financial institutions and their users to conduct cybercommerce. Improved technology, however, has also provided an opportunity for criminals and fraudsters to use computer software systems to transfer their illicit gains and thereby sustain their criminal enterprises. Cybercommerce depends on rapid, anonymous and unsupervised transactions. Such a system is extremely vulnerable to criminals seeking to launder money on the Internet. In a system where there are millions of transactions unsupervised by financial institutions, comprehensive oversight becomes impractical.
