3G Technology To Fuel Money Laundering

There are plenty of reasons to expect backlash against 3G technology, but I didn’t expect to see money laundering over 3G as one of the first to pop up. Apparently, some government officials are warning that mobile gaming over 3G networks offers the perfect cover for people to launder money and commit fraud. Of course, I’m not sure why 3G is pointed out specifically. Isn’t this true of all online gambling? Hopefully, someone will point out (yet again) to these people that the crime itself is the problem – not the technology that criminals use to commit the crime.
