The event that will include more than 200 attendees is held each year for compliance and fraud professionals from across the US and Canada to provide an interactive experience in preventing fraud and money laundering.

More than 40 experts from a variety of government organizations will speak, including the Federal Trade Commission, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) of the US Treasury Department, the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre (FINTRAC) of Canada’s Ministry of Finance, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and law enforcement from across the US.

Joe Cachey, Western Union’s Acting General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer said:. “This event is a unique learning experience, allowing professionals from a wide variety of financial services firms to better identify and protect their organizations against fraud.”

The conference was introduced in 2006 with a view to provide continuing education to Western Union Agents on anti-money laundering best practices, regulations and law-enforcement trends. Since then, the event has grown into one of North America’s largest anti-money laundering/anti-fraud conferences for professionals from various industries.
