Classification 112: Foreign Funds

This classification was established in 1944. It includes a large control file of intelligence information on foreign funds of interest to the FBI, as well as Bureau investigations of suspicious activities in this area. The main file in this classification contains no investigative records, and is broken into sub-files for individual countries. Typical subjects within it include the tracing of German funds to Latin America after World War II, unusual transfers of funds from U.S. banks to other countries, and the sale of U.S. dollars on the black market. The investigative files document the use of mail intercepts and informants by the Bureau.
