    Online Gaming - Buying and selling game "skins"

    AVP at a bank ($413MUSA)
    Does anyone have any experience with their customers that are a 'middle-man' for online gamers who purchase and sell virtual items for the games?  We have a customer that recently started doing this the past two months (while all the social distancing is going on - lots of people playing games).  He has a few different checking accounts and all are being used in high volume with Google pay, cash app, Venmo and additional mobile check deposits.  He's written very large checks to another person to buys his inventory (probably over $75,000 total in two months).  He's been very up front about what he's doing but I have no experience with this type of activity.  Looking at online articles, there is a legitimate 'business'  that people have made with this.  
    I'm just not sure where I should take it from here.  Should I get new CDD/EDD questions answered?  Should we ask the customer to somehow make this a legitimate business?  (he's using personal accounts and a business account that he's had opened for some time for something else).  With the high volume of transaction between all the accounts, I'm afraid I would miss money laundering if it were occurring.
    Any knowledge in this industry would be appreciated.
