    In the business world, due diligence refers to the investigation and steps were taken by organisations to satisfy all legal requirements before buying or selling products/ services or entering into a contract or a financial arrangement with another party. An Integrity Due Diligence allows an organisation to reduce risks – including risks arising from the FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) and the UKBA (U.K. Bribery Act), to make informed decisions and pursue takeovers or mergers with more confidence. Due diligence is vital to prevent many types of fraud. While in some cases, it is also up to the consumer to do their own personal due diligence. Due diligence sounds complicated, but it is merely the process of doing your homework before you make a significant commitment.

    Money mules are a hot topic in fraud prevention circles these days. But wait a minute, isn't that more of an AML issue? I mean the literal definition of money laundering is "concealing the origins of illegally obtained money". That's money muling to a T. However, when you look across the lifecycle of muling activity, it becomes more complex. And when it comes to categorizing money mules within a specific fraud/AML use case, mules indeed have an identity crisis.
