Gambling body for the UK, the Gambling Commission, has made licensees aware of a spike in suspicious activity submitted to the National Crime Agency (NCA).

A statement from the bulletin read: 

“The NCA during COVID-19 pandemic has seen an increase in SAR submissions and it is vital that operators submit a SAR to the United Kingdom’s Financial Intelligence Unit (UKFIU) whenever there is knowledge or suspicion of money laundering or terrorist financing.

“Failure to do so may result in licensees committing a criminal offence.”
