Microstructuring

  • This is the same as structuring, but for very small amounts, e.g. $800. The cash from the sale of drugs is deposited in one country and often withdrawn in a foreign country to pay for the supplies of the drugs.

  • It is very difficult to detect, but some signs might be:

    • using blank deposit slips rather than paying in book slips

    • frequent small cash deposits not consistent with usual business or personal activity

    • cash deposits followed quickly by ATM withdrawals in a high risk country
