Money Laundering procedures for remote clients

Hello everyone :)

I was just wondering what Money Laundering procedures people had in place for any remote work they do for people. I am thinking of freelancing on a remote basis but suddenly thought about the implications of the AML rules. Does anyone do any work where they never actually meet their clients ever? I'm talking about people who use websites such as freelancers.co.uk. If you're selling services to a specific timescale, surely it makes it harder to do all the necessary ML checks & Engagement letters first? I've seen some people offering to turn things round in a day. It's just baffled me a bit and wondered if anyone was actually doing this.
