Money laundering is the process of changing large amounts of money that have been gained through illegitimate means, money that is illegally gained, illegally transferred or illegally utilized. Especially money gained through forgery, bribery, or thievery. Money evidently gained through crime is "dirty" money, and money that has been "laundered" to appear as if it came from a legitimate source is "clean" money. Money can be laundered by many methods, which vary in complexity and sophistication.
