Retired FBI investigator Jerri Williams looks at eight money-laundering scams from popular TV shows and movies and rates them based on realism. She looks at "Ozark" S1E4 (2017), "The Wolf of Wall Street" (2013), "Narcos" (2015-2017), "Breaking Bad" S5E8 (2012), "Scarface" (1983), "Mickey Blue Eyes" (1999), "American Made" (2017), and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" (2011). In the video, Williams analyzes scenes where money is being laundered through businesses. Another form of money laundering is simply spending more than $10,000 of illegally-obtained funds. Williams served as an FBI special agent for 26 years, working on major economic fraud investigations. She is the recipient of four United States Attorney Awards for Distinguished Service. She now hosts the true-crime podcast "FBI Retired Case File Review" and works as a technical consultant for TV shows and movies depicting the FBI. Williams is the author of "FBI Myths and Misconceptions: A Manual for Armchair Detectives": https://jerriwilliams.com/books/fbi-myths-and-misconceptions-a-manual-for-armchair-detectives/.
