"This book is a fabulous practical ready reference. It exposes a significant problem, trade-based money laundering. As someone who trains AML professionals, I plan to use Mr. Cassara's book as a valuable learning tool. Well done, John."

Dennis M. Lormel,
Founder and former Chief of the FBI's Terrorist Financing Operations Section

"Although Trade Based Money Laundering is one of the world's greatest financial threats, it is the least understood method of laundering the proceeds of financial crime. Throughout my legal career I have relied on John Cassara to demystify TBML for me. John's thoughtful book is filled with useful and practical information that will demystify TBML for everyone from bank compliance officers to senior government policy makers. It is almost as good as having John on speed dial!"

"If there's an expert in the field of Trade-Based Money Laundering, it's John Cassara. I've known John for more than twenty years. During that time, John has investigated TBML as a law enforcement agent and studied it from every angle. TBML is a hot topic in anti-money laundering/combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT), and this book is very timely in that it tackles a complex topic in plain language mixed with John's investigative insights."
