to the International Money Laundering Information Network

IMoLIN is an Internet-based network assisting governments, organizations and individuals in the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism. IMoLIN has been developed with the cooperation of the world's leading anti-money laundering organizations. Included herein is a database on legislation and regulations throughout the world ( AMLID), an electronic library, and a calendar of events in the anti-money laundering / countering the financing of terrorism fields. Please be advised that certain aspects of IMoLIN are secured and therefore not available for public use.



Misuse of UNODC and IMoLIN's names for fraudulent purposes

Various types of scam emails or letters purporting to be from or associated with IMoLIN and/or UNODC have been circulating requesting fees for the transfer of money. In some cases the UN and UNODC logos as well as IMoLIN's name and logo are being used for fraudulent purposes. Criminals who fraudulently claim to be from UNODC, request victims to pay fees for fictitious services relating to the verification of the origin of funds and claim that the funds will be blocked if the customer fails to pay the fees. UNODC and IMoLIN do not have the ability to block any account or issue any certificates for anti-money laundering compliance and will never require any fees for such services, since none of these services are rendered.

If you receive any fraudulent emails or letters, we suggest that you report the matter to your local law enforcement authorities.
