On February 19 at 10:45, a guest lecture "Financial crimes - how do they affect the individual and society as a whole?" organized by the Communication management division of Turība University will take place on-line. The guest lecture will be led by Toms Platacis, Deputy Head of the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), and Paulis Iljenkovs, Deputy Head of the Strategic Analysis Division of the Financial Intelligence Unit.
Money has both a light side that everyone knows well and a dark side that often remains hidden and unknown on a daily basis. The dark side of money is financial crime, which is not just the work of an isolated group of people. Financial crime affects everyone, both individually and society as a whole.

- What is money laundering and how does it work?
- What are the schemes used in financial crime and how to identify them?
- Young people are currently involved in various financial crime schemes. How can this affect the future of young people?
