In the past, banks were frightened to take Mafia money -- that was in the 80s, 90s -- now they search out Mafia money, because they lack cash flow and because the economic crisis has put the banking system on its knees.

So, the banks defence systems have been completely lowered and the Mafia can enter. It is a relatively new phenomenon. The Mafia used to have trouble laundering money in European banks, they used offshore banks in South America and Asia but now they have totally penetrated the legal economy.
