Capital One Fined for Anti-Money-Laundering Deficiencies

The Treasury Department on Friday said it fined Capital One Financial Corp. for “willfully failing to implement and maintain” effective anti-money-laundering controls.

The allegations pertain to a check-cashing portfolio that Capital One acquired when it bought North Fork Bank in 2006.
