Terrorism Financing is the process of providing financial assistance to terrorists. Terrorists use various methods to avoid the vigilant eyes of law enforcement and crime prevention authorities. They collect funds from charity/NPO grants and donations and then buy expensive items like antiques or crypto or store funds into bank accounts. They then try to transfer funds to the desired location and account by making hawala transactions, dealing with crypto, or wire transfers. Finally, they use the funds for terrorist activities.
