For investigators and analysts, investigating a money laundering scam means following the money trail through each of these phases. Each phase may in itself also involve several steps.
Investigations also require a lot of documents and data: transaction histories (which may include international transactions), account information across several jurisdictions, information on businesses that might be involved, and more.
Even when investigators can access the records, they still have to piece them together to build a comprehensive view of the money laundering scam. How to track connections and entities across thousands of documents or more? That’s where graph visualization can help.
