We’re some of the FinCEN Files journalists who revealed how banks profit from money laundering. Ask Us Anything!
We’re a few of the reporters and editors who worked on the FinCEN Files investigation – a 16-month exposé that reveals the role of global banks in industrial-scale money laundering.
At the heart of the investigation are secret documents, which BuzzFeed News shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and its 100 media partners.
Our work offers an unprecedented view of global financial corruption, the banks enabling it, and the government agencies that fail to stop it.
