Online poker: Payment processors for a tiny industry "launders money" by miscategorizing credit card transactions to allow Americans to play online poker. Over a dozen people indicted, over a billion dollars in fines and settlements.

HSBC: Third-largest global bank knowingly launders billions of dollars for huge violent Mexican and Columbian drug cartels, and deliberately helps clients in rogue nations evade financial blockades to fund terrorists. No criminal charges, fine of under two billion dollars.

Thank you, Department of "Justice".
