Here is scenario:
Customer receives a $50k commercial LOC, based on a brokerage statement that shows a balance of $60k.
Two months later, customer says he received an inheritance, sends over new brokerage statements, showing a balance of $16 million dollars.
Lender increases LOC to $4 million.
Customer draws on LOC, up to $500k.
Lender receives statement from brokerage company couple days later, showing balance of $60k. Does some digging, finds out customer falsified brokerage records. Customer's supposed broker at company does not exist.
Called the Note, rec'd wire to pay off the $500k.
My question is, what amount would you reference in the SAR? I can go into detail in the narrative of course, but as far as the amount, would you use the $16 mil (the amount he altered on the stmt)? Or would I use the $500k (amount he actually drew on LOC)? Or the $4 mil (the amount of the LOC)?
Thanks,

I would use the 500k and let the narrative tell the story.

I am sure people will disagree with me - I would call this a loan fraud and use the amount of the LOC ($4mil)

Ditto BC78a. The falsified documents were used to obtain a $4 million LOC, so that's what I'd list as the SAR amount. You can describe how much was drawn and repaid in the narrative.
