The COVID-19 pandemic has led to unprecedented global challenges, human suffering, and economic disruption. It has also led to an increase in COVID-19-related crimes, including fraud, cybercrime, misdirection, or exploitation of government funds or international financial assistance, which is creating new sources of proceeds for illicit actors. Using information provided to the members of the FATF Global Network on 7 and 23 April, this paper identifies challenges, good practices and policy responses to new money laundering and terrorist financing threats and vulnerabilities arising from the COVID-19 crisis.
