My name is Joann Alicea and since 2011 I have been lobbying the US Treasury Financial Crimes Enforcement Network known as FinCEN to update the Suspicious Activity Report known as the SAR for a Human Trafficking Checkbox Category. The SAR is used by all US Financial Institutions to report on illicit activity by simply following the money. Please see my article published in the 23rd Edition of the FinCEN SAR Activity Review Trends, Tips and Issues entitled FinCEN SAR Checkbox for Human Trafficking by Joann Alicea; Page 67; Article URL listed below:
