The article starts off talking about money laundering, then conflates that with theft of game (and real) currency from players' accounts.

Money laundering is about concealing the origin of money that has already been criminally obtained. So it involves buying stuff and reselling it. If you steal money in a game, then you have a bigger laundering problem.
