This chapter underscores the reasons why we know so little about money laundering. After several decades of ‘doing something’ to stop money laundering, what we have chosen to read, listen to and ultimately believe is no longer true about the problem. The commonly publicised three-stage process of money laundering is looked at before concluding that it is neither helpful nor is it now true. The chapter also questions the relevance of experts in the AML field. Are they really experts in money laundering or simply storytellers and compliance tick-box managers made to confuse the confused?
