What is a money services business, FinCEN?
A Money Services Business (MSB) is a business that provides financial services to the public. Money Services Businesses are regulated by FinCEN and other federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Treasury, the Federal Reserve System, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
Money Services Businesses include check cashers, currency dealers or exchangers, bill payers, money transmitters, international wire transfer services and issuers of stored value (such as those who provide gift cards or prepaid phone cards). If you accept cash for your business or personal use from someone else and send it elsewhere, you are likely considered an MSB under federal law.
