Money laundering.

Smurfing is a money laundering activity which aims to disguise the illegal origins of large amounts of cash by making many smaller individual deposits into a legitimate financial institution.


"Other instances [of money laundering] include structuring or 'smurfing' large amounts of cash into smaller deposits and then withdrawing them as legitimate funds."
