The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has issued an alert to better support financial institutions in detecting financial activity related to human smuggling along the southwest border of the United States. In support of ongoing initiatives by the U.S. Government to combat human smuggling, the alert builds upon FinCEN’s 2020 and 2014 human smuggling and human trafficking advisories, while providing information specifically related to human smuggling occurring along the southwest border of the United States. It also provides red flag indicators to help financial institutions better identify transactions potentially related to such activity and reminds financial institutions of their Bank Secrecy Act reporting obligations.
