What gambling operators should do if they find dye-stained bank notes
29 June 2021
Where operators find dye-stained bank notes on their premises, they should use non-emergency contact options to report the deposits to the relevant local police force. Police officers may wish to make enquiries, including the securing of any CCTV footage.
Operators must also submit suspicious activity reports (SARs) to the United Kingdom’s Financial Intelligence Unit (UKFIU), which is part of the National Crime Agency (NCA), in all cases where they have knowledge or suspicion of money laundering or terrorist financing in relation to any dye-stained bank notes they detect.
