Breaking the Rules: Suspicious bank transaction rules led to Spitzer resignation
Business rules triggered by Eliot Spitzer's suspicious money transfers led to his resignation as Governor of New York..
The Justice Department says Spitzer is likely to be charged with a relativley obscure statute or rule called "structuring". Even people who know the rules break the rules. It all started a few months ago when a bank in New York followed the rules for filing a Suspicious Activity Report. It ended with his resignation last week.
To help understand the rules that "fired" Spitzer, we created an interactive business rule model of SAR rules. The rules are on www.RuleMap.com. This is a new website we created for demonstrating our interactive BIZRULES® RuleMap™ rulebooks and business rule models.
A picture is worth a thousand words. We beleive this RuleMap makes it easy to understand the rules that Spitzer broke.
