The Bank Secrecy Act requires financial institutions to assist U.S. government agencies in the detection and prevention of money laundering and in preventing the financing of terrorist activities. Specifically, the Act requires financial institutions to keep records of cash purchases of negotiable instruments, file reports of cash transactions exceeding a certain threshold and report suspicious activity that might signify money laundering, tax evasion or other criminal activity.
