Definition:

Disguising the source of money generated through illegal activities so that it resembles legitimate income. Money laundering involves breaking up large amounts of cash into smaller transactions, changing its form through investments or deposits into bank accounts, and moving the money through seemingly legitimate businesses to bring it into mainstream economy.
