Thought this might be interesting to the board.  It happened through Wachovia prior to Wells Fargo's acquisition/forced purchase.

"Wachovia admitted it didnít do enough to spot illicit funds in handling $378.4 billion for Mexican-currency-exchange houses from 2004 to 2007. Thatís the largest violation of the Bank Secrecy Act, an anti-money-laundering law, in U.S. history -- a sum equal to one-third of Mexicoís current gross domestic product. "
